Common Crane sighting


A Common Crane, relatively common in parts of Eurasia, but strictly an accidental visitor to North America was captured near Coronation on April 11 amongst a flock of Sandhill Cranes. This crane, according to the Guide to North American Birds, likely joined flocks of Sandhills in eastern Siberia, and then travelled with them back across the Bering Strait and south to wintering areas on the North American continent.ECA Review/A.
