Wheeler Wildlife Refuge

I retired from ECM Hospital yesterday.  Since it was a nice day with cold coming in soon, I took a trip over to Wheeler Wildlife Refuge.  So far twenty whooping cranes have migrated in.  After seeing photos of the cranes this week, I thought it would be a good day for seeing the rare birds.  However the cranes had other ideas.  They didn’t show up at the observation building all day today or yesterday.

I did see lots and lots of sandhill cranes, American Wigeon, Gadwall, Northern Pintail, Green-Winged Teal, Snow geese, Ring neck ducks and Greater White-Fronted Goose among others.  On the way home, I swung by Wheeler Dam.
