Today at Hiwassee Refuge

We did get a view of the Hooded Cane as it flew by but nothing to show a picture of. We had a Whooping crane for a few minutes until it turned into an albinistic Sandhill crane...a rare enough white colored sandhill but not a Whooper.
I was amazed at the number of folks from foreign states and even countries that were hanging around. Some folks had been there for ten hours when we arrived. The light was pretty marginal for photos, as you can see from the above.


  1. Marginal? Nope. Stunning photo.

  2. Did you paddle? I'm headed there sometime soon and it looks like Bryce Ferry is the best put in. Just curious if that was how you visited the cranes...

  3. Love the halo effect...really makes it pop!
