Sandhill cranes stage major migration over Illinois

November 17, 2008 at 11:12 PM

Birders reported a major migration of sandhill cranes Monday over the Greene Valley Forest Preserve.

From 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. birders counted 12,413 sandhills and admit they may have missed some heading south. According to Bob Fisher, two years ago on Nov. 19, 2006, they counted 14,000 sandhills over the same site.

Now might be a good time to visit Jasper-Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area in northwest Indiana.

I saw a very large flock of birds (obviously not Canadian Geese) over Geneva Road and President St. in the northern east corner of Wheaton, IL yesterday afternoon around 1:30 p.m.  There were well over 200 birds and they made the strangest noise and were flying at a very high altitude.  They circled as if to make sure that the ones lagging behind caught up and flew on towards the South. It was amazing!
