Sandhill Cranes

I've spotted two different flocks at the wax this year of approx 50 birds each (up high) and saw a pair landing in Baton Rouge.

First Sandhills I've ever spotted here.

Anyone else seeing them??

I hunted in the Lacassine area a few days after Christmas. We saw several flocks of 100+ moving throughout the morning. I have not seen that many in my entire life combined. They are obviously growing in population, so it makes sense they would spread to the east.

We heard some in the fog two weeks ago in a goose hunt. They came over too high for a shot. Just 4 of em.
My lab died, and no one on Duckhuntingchat even cared.
