Mark Johnson, of Mora, and I saw the three whooping cranes this afternoon at the same place as they were seen earlier by Ned Winters and Carolyn Walkin, and before that by mjbade. Am checking the camera shortly to see if I got some decent photos. No matter, they were a wonderful present for Labor Day.
