Sedge of Cranes

In my truck between markers 11 & 12 on Jan. 11, 2019, at the Ridgefield NWR.  Suddenly there was noise and I looked up to see about 60 Sandhill Cranes in formation–by far the largest number of flying cranes I’ve seen at the River S Unit.  The photo shows only about half of the birds, as they were spread out.  The shot was taken as the sun was going down.
