Thanks, Pipix, and I do believe you're right about them being sandhill cranes. Thank you!

Hi Gary:

What you have pictured here are probably sandhill cranes ... they are very noisy and yes, they are high flyers. We live on a river here in Illinois and it is one of their flyways. They frequently "park" right on top of our house and circle without flapping a wing as they let a thermal take them back to a higher altitude. There have been as many as 3 flocks of them in a thermal at one time at different altitudes. What a racket!

About GaryVA

GaryVA

My interest in weather really spun up during my career in wildland fire management in Southern California, as weather has a tremendous affect on wildfire starts and behavior. This is an, ahem, older photo of me in those days. I'm now living in central Texas, and weather is a very serious hobby of mine. My weather web site, providing current, historical, and forecast weather conditions for Central Texas is Round Rock Weather. var sc_project=2591691; var sc_invisible=0; var sc_partition=25; var sc_security="b5a0cb54";
