Common Crane at Mormon Lake
On May 12, 2017 from about 1pm for 2 hrs, I observed the Common Crane on the west end of the lake in the grassy wetland. Spectacular sighting along with 2 other birders. We had good binoculars and a spotting scope. I was able to get some good video of the bird flying. The closer you get to him he moves further away. Still on a bird high seeing this rare bird in this area.
