back to Carlos nevertheless

Work has prevented me from birding the last couple of days; but, after a break this afternoon, I did head out to Carlos for a few hours. I did locate three pairs of Sandhill Cranes in the usual locations; I did not find any large flocks. Also, I did not see a single Great Egret. Some Red-winged Blackbirds have left the nest; the goslings are nearing in size to the adults. The flies are bothersome, the mosquitoes were relatively few.
Jim & I hope to make it to the Sherburne Wildlife Refuge this week.
