Just returned from one of my Vagabond type bucket list adventures. And adventure it was, more later.
The Sandhill Cranes, all 700,000 of them, migrate from Central America to Siberia during March via Grand Island Neberska. They put on about 15% more weight for the rest of the journey Whilst I wouldn't give it back things could have gone better. I could have done without the broken hand, wrist, and forearm. Hense, this brief message typed one handed.
BTW a plethora of other bird species tag along. NO, I didn't get a look at the Whooping Crane (the gold standard)
