Today I flew to Omaha and drove out to Kearney for the 35th Annual Rivers and Wildlife Celebration--a birding festival celebrating the 500,000 Sandhill Cranes that stop along the Platte River on their way north each year. There were hundreds of cranes in the fields off I-80 as I drove out, and I saw flocks of Snow Goose and a few Canada Goose. This vast agricultural land is full of birds right now. Check out a map of Sandhill Cranes migrating up through the Great Plains and North from Florida during the Great Backyard Bird Count last month(here).
