While Cutting Wood—-Tuesday, February 28, 2017

We are still cutting and loading and hauling wood…several more loads to got.


But yesterday in the middle of a wind storm (rain and snow coming in) the SandHill Cranes started gathering over us.  They were so loud we could hear them OVER the noise of the chain saw!

Please excuse the wind….I just HAD to take this short video for you.


They were gathering right over us into one HUGE group of birds!  What an amazing site! And true gift from nature!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. They gather like that in the fall to head south. Great flocks so high up we can’t even see them except for the sun glinting off their wings. We hear them and the summer residents fly up to meet their comrades. It is a sad time for me and I always wish them safe journey. I know that the cold and snow are not far behind.
