sandhill crances camp verde
1. sam hough is looking at 2 SANHILL CRANES in camp verde off quarterhorse lane at end of east cole blvd.
2. he thinks these are probably the same 2 that he found on bates road in cottonwood last week that flew away after 1/2 hour (which is why i did not bother to post).
3. we think these are 2 different subspecies based on very different size of the 2 birds.
4. these 2 sightings are 1st in my 7.5 years here in verde valley.

RE: sandhill crances camp verde
From the 1981 annotated checklist: "Lesser" (canadensis) Sandhill Cranes are the more common race in AZ with "Greater" Sandhill Cranes (tabida) also occurring (page 31).  Also see David E. Brown's 1989 Arizona Game Birds pg 193-196.
