Annual Celebration of Whooping Cranes and Other Birds from February 21 – 24, 2013.

This would be a good time to view them - I am hoping I can go.

I wasn't able to get a picture - but found one online. Will post it later tonight when I'm using my MacBook in the hotel room!

I saw (among many other shorebirds) a Long-billed Curlew flying overhead today! Beautiful sight in the morning!

I'm at the coast birding and taking pictures. I will share some of them with the group.
How's everyone doing today?
