Golden leaves and sandhill cranes at Jasper-Pulaski
Nov 3, 2013

It’s a nice area less than 2 hours south of Chicago, where one can have a pleasant walk amidst marshes that look more like connected small lakes. This is also an area where sandhill cranes stop on their way south, their numbers peaking in mid-November (up to 20 thousand cranes can be seen on one big field at that time). Beginning about one hour before sunset, flocks of cranes kite from all directions into Goose Pasture. They dance, gab, and socialize before returning to roosting marshes at dusk. You can see cranes in dynamics in my short video at , while static pictures in this album show them somewhat closer.
