Monthly Journal – February, 2017

Spring has arrived early this year after a mild winter.  Migrants have been here in full force.  Red-winged Blackbirds and American Robins blanketed the neighborhood for days and Sandhill Cranes were seen high overhead.  All that planting you did last year to provide blooms for pollinators in late winter and early spring is now paying off.

Sandhills Overhead!

Sandhill Cranes headed north

At 3:30 this afternoon 200+ Sandhill Cranes flew directly over Peachtree Park, calling all the while.  Although it was overcast, they were low enough for clear viewing.

It’s very early, but birders think they are already migrating north.  Such a treat to see them!
