Sandhill crane migration a little late this season

Finally enjoying many flocks, some as big as two hundred pilots circling and gaining altitude in the Uncompahgre valley before their flight over Red Mountain pass then a hard left (east) to the headwaters of the Rio Grande.  Their flight takes them to the San Luis Valley and into northern New Mexico and onto San Antonio (southern N.M.) to the Bosque del Apache Wildlife Refuge and some onto Mexico… This usually happens in late November/early December, but with the extended autumn and no winter to speak of they have delayed their southern sojourn  by six weeks…
