Subject: [ia-bird] 25 Sandhill Cranes, 2 Northern Shrikes

Yesterday, Betty & I counted 25 flying Sandhill Cranes and 2 perched Northern Shrikes, among dozens of regular occurring waterfowl, Bald Eagles, etc. All were viewed from the well-known Army Road approx. 1/4 mile straight east of New Albin, in Allamakee Co.

The Army Road is closed off to traffic approx. 1 mile from New Albin due to high water, and the river level is likely to get much higher soon. When river levels are low enough ( i.e. the "old normal" ), this road provides one of the easiest and birdiest accesses through the flood plain of the Upper Mississippi River.

Good birding.
