Just a quick post to let you know that the Sandhill Cranes are still at Crex Meadows in substantial numbers, as you can see from this shot. Most of them were just East of the South end of Phantom Lake; if you go beyond the dirt road heading Northeasterly, there is an overlook covering a large area. I suspect that they may roost there and, if so, this would be a great spot to see them just before sunrise. There were also many on the East side of West Refuge Road.
