Day Three Hundred Fourteen

Hundreds and Hundreds of Sandhill Cranes

Back in September (Day 264) after visiting the Grand Kankakee Marsh, we traveled to the Jasper-Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area in hopes of seeing sandhill cranes. That side trip was a bust, but we vowed to go back. After doing a little research into when was a good time to go, we determined today was the day, and we scheduled our arrival for an hour before sunset.

Even though we did far more driving to get to Medaryville, Indiana, than we did walking once we got there, it was worth it! Tens of thousands of sandhill cranes use this spot each fall as a layover on their way south to Florida. We saw wave after wave, hundreds and hundreds, of cranes land in the open field as the sun set.

It was unforgettable.
