> It was good to see an increase in numbers this week. We had 157 total cranes and about half, 83, will be spending the night. More cranes are gathering in the new habitat that has resulted from the removal of buckthorn by the fen.
>
> Ross spotted an American Kestral perched in the same area. Other highlights included a hummingbird, Sharp-shinned Hawk, and a female scarlet tanager. A pack of coyotes serenaded us before we left.
