Roma Lenehan reported on July 11 that the Sandhills cranes have a new colt, barely a week old. She observed the parents and colt by the Class of 1918 Marsh. The pair of sandhill cranes had been unsuccessful in their first breeding attempt this season in the Pond Marsh of Picnic Point. A new colt is wonderful news.
If you are aware of bird breeding activities and locations in the Preserve, please enter your information in the bird log kept at the Birding Bulletin board inside the gate to Picnic Point, or email Roma Lenehan.
