Speaking of flight paths…

I got to see the Sandhill cranes today when I went for my walk this afternoon.  There were several flocks, which all converged on the library, then circled together while the birds burbled madly at one another.  I relayed this information to my coworkers at the desk and was asked to repeat – several times – my interpretation of crane burblings.  I’m not sure my rendition is actually GOOD, but it is funny.  They are even funnier when they dance.  (As am I.)

Also saw:

Red-winged blackbirds
House finchHouse sparrow
Mourning dove
Canada goose
Grackles
Kildeer (heard overhead in the parking lot at the gym this morning – hooray, they’re back!)
