Laura and I spent the morning at the SLNWR with 22 WildLink members, but had to leave Z at home with grandma due to a miscalculation of available seats. To make things right with Z, we ate a quick lunch at home and then headed back out to the refuge in the late afternoon hoping to let Z have some fun running around catch a sunset illuminating the clouds of what would be a pretty drenching storm the following day. We were not disappointed. Although individual bird types were hard to discern, there was no mistaking the Sandhill Cranes as they flew in to Sousa Marsh for the evening (listen to the video clips).
Enjoy the photos.
