The Sand-hill Cranes are Back —- Wednesday, October 9, 2019

The Sandhill Cranes are back (this is an old photo)

(Another old photo)

A pair flew over my head as I was shuffling around the trash cans yesterday morning

(From my archives)

They hollered and squawked at me as they flapped vigorously toward the Upper End of our farm

If was a happy feeling to see them arrive.

Since yesterday was lovely warm in the afternoon. We decided to take one last spin in the corvette before we have to put the top back on.

(Photo from last year)

We drove around and looked at the hemp farms…harvest has begun.  I wonder if the killing freezes damages the CBD oil in the plant? I will let you know if I find out anything

Part of my yard, now a beautiful memory.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. Are the cranes right on time? Or early? And my curiosity, have they stopped running irragation water for this cold spell – cuz it’s gonna warm back up?


    • They seem to be early this year, as do the Canada geese. We are done irrigating, but the farmers who have planted cover crops and winter wheat are irrigating. The ditches will be turned off the week of Halloween.


  2. So glad to see the Sandhills have come back to you. Maybe our pair is with them. I shall miss seeing them return next Spring. Winter is close….bah humbug.
