Haehnle Sanctuary Crane Count 11/21/2016

Tuesday, November 22, 2016 6:25 AM | Steve Jerant (Administrator)

A Winter Wren, Northern Shrike, and the ice on Mud Lake: we got the hint. This will be our last crane count at Haehnle Sanctuary for this year. 

Two cranes did land in the marsh and lots were seen moving in the area to the north and north west this afternoon. The Northern Shrike returned again and there were lots of ducks moving about. Some gathered on the ice and some found the last remaining liquid water available in Mud lake Marsh.


Remember Haehnle remains a vibrant habitat all year long, so come and visit through the winter and into next crane season.
