Tom Hodgson, Cranes in Field
5,000 to 6,000 Sandhill Cranes are gathering at Haehnle Sanctuary each evening, two hours before sunset. Last year, 1,000 or less were counted. They'll be Haehnle, 20 minutes west of Chelsea, until mid November. www.sandhillcranesgather.com

Nov 5 Crane count is expected to exceed all previous counts. Come and watch as the cranes glide into the wetland area. 2 hours before sunset.

Over 7400 Cranes! The Cranes have exceeded all previous records. Still lots of Cranes - stop at Haehnle Sanctaury to see them before they all migrate.
