Arrival of the Sandhill Cranes

I wait for them every year. I locate them first by sound, though their precursors remind me of their arrival weeks before. At summer’s end, cattle egrets dot the fields with shocks of white, and by early fall, Canada geese stand like awkward, misshapen soldiers in places lush with grass mere weeks ago. Snow geese…See More
