Sandhill Crane (5/28/14)
and his mate are DRIVING US NUTS!!!!!
I know I spoke of waking to their calls very fondly recently. Well, I’m over it! They are like CLOCKWORK. Every freaking morning at 5:30am, they start squalling. We gave up and decided to close the windows and turn on the a/c so we can sleep past dawn! It was either close the windows or introduce them to Smith & Wesson. It’s really quite annoying – during the day, they are all over the place, away from our house. We’ve seen them as far as a few miles up Hwy 78. “Lucky us,” they come back to Scilley Mountain Vista to bed down for the night. Sheesh.
Crane casserole anyone?
