Sandhill Crane's - Dayton
Lora and I went down to the Hiwassee Wildlife Refuge to see the Sandhill Cranes. They are having a festival this weekend and we thought that we should beat the crowd. Lora had been told that there were thousands of them on the river and we had never gone to see them. When we got there obviously there were not thousands. We found out that the seven days of rain had made the river rise and the cranes had gone. It was good to see the ones we saw. We got to see three different hawks, one Blue Heron, and lots of smaller birds. We did look the part with our camera and binoculars.
