Sandhill Cranes
Today at the Lipan Point Hawkwatch on the South Rim, numerous observers including myself, Lyndia Hammer, Jordan McCormack, and Lainie LaHaye saw 3 Sandhill Cranes fly by.

Surprisingly, this is only the 2nd record for the park (that I am aware of). One was seen on the North Rim in 1979.

It was a good day for raptors as well, with lots of redtails, including a few dark morphs and one rufous/intermediate. Eagles are starting to show up too.

Although apparently not in the park, I have a record of a flyover from the Kaibab Plateau in 1991.
