Monday was my first visit of the year to Crex Meadows. Check out the web site here. This year's program at the refuge may be the most ambitious yet.
I didn't see any Tundras, only Trumpeters.
No female Red-winged Blackbirds yet, but some of the males are establishing territories; others appear to be migrating through.
There were a scattered number of Sandhill Cranes. I don't know whether they are just migrating or planning to stay. I found them in pairs, but not in large flocks. This, and the other photos, were taken shortly after sunrise, hence the warm colors.
More Sandhills and other birds will follow.
