A friend and I spent the day in Crex Meadows Wisconsin. "The Crex" as it's locally known is a wildlife management area that attracts sandhill cranes by the thousands. We got there for sunrise and stayed until sunset.
Here is a slide show of what we saw. These are my favorites of the nearly 1400 clicks I made that day.
Click on the box like thing on the lower right of the slideshow frame to expand it. I think you can click it again once you get into the slideshow to get a full screen view.
