Skywatch Friday: flying east
Crex Meadow Wildlife Area in Wisconsin. We had gone to see a true prairie and catch sight of water fowl and other prairie birds. Turns out the fun doesn't begin until September when migration begins. The area is a stopping point for all manner of migrating flocks--thousands of birds we're told. This trip was to scope out a portion of its 30,000 acres of brush prairie and sedge marshes and wildlife in each. Its a remarkable tribute to reclamation to its original state. That day the sun was bright and the big Midwestern sky was blue. What you can't see in the photo below is a small group of Sand Hill Cranes grazing in the man-made field.
