On our trip we were lucky enough to come across a migrating flock of Snow Geese. We drove onto a grid and were able to hear their sounds and get a few pictures as they were taking off and landing.
And as luck would have it, on our way back on Sunday she spotted some Sandhill Cranes!! Again, I turned into a farmer's field and we could hear their sounds and see them fly. The pictures are not great but I'll share them here anyway.
