The grip of winter is still firmly in place. Winter has a beauty all its own and I really appreciate it. The Nature Center is a buzz of activities and details, the press is calling and the web-site is receiving hits from all over the world with people planning their trips to the area to view cranes. it is nice to step outside and just take in the beauty.
We have a number of people coming out this coming weekend and I was hoping to give them a taste of the coming migration, but my guess at this point, we will just have to wait a few more weeks to find large numbers of birds. That's ok, all in good time.
We also had reporter Steve White from our local ABC affiliate NTV stop by for an update on preparations for the "crane season". This kind of publicity is very important to the Center to help get the word out about wildlife opportunities in the area. He was a real trooper and the weather was not the nicest it has been. Click here to link to the report. NTV had a pole that stated 30% of the local people will go and watch the cranes in some manner. I was pleased with that. We'd better get more coffee ordered!
