Tony Harvey may have crane pictures to share

Noted bird photographer never leaves home without camera. Wife says he would be lost without it. Fortunately, he had his camera with him when he saw the cranes from Snake Creek Road, overlooking Green River Lake. Photos are yet to be processed to check for keepers

I too have been witness to the great flocks of both Honkers and Garglers over the past few days.We now live on Snake Creek Road and right at the top of Snake Creek Hill which affords us of a wonderful view of beautiful Green River Lake.

Birds of all kinds abound here, most of which now are the kind that hang around for the winter: Carolina Wrens, Tufted Titmouse, Purple Finch, Red Breasted and White Breasted Nuthatches, along with several dozen Bluebirds, Bohemian Waxwings, as well many Dark-eyed Juncos or what most call them around here "Snowbirds."

Captured several images of migrating geese and cranes

I suppose once I get things caught up around here. I will have to get my camera out more often and start shooting some images for the readers to see. I captured several images yesterday of the migrating Geese and Sandhill Cranes. I haven't had the time to process them to see if any are worth sharing here.

I'm almost certain none will be as good as what Kay Haupt captured recently. The birds I saw were flying rather high. Still it was a thrill to watch them as they headed south to a warmer place to spend the winter.

If the wind blowing today is indication of what lies in store for the rest of the winter here. Then I will need to find the long handles for my treks out into the nearby woods.

Memories of the whooping cranes from two years ago

Seeing the Cranes and Geese yesterday brought back the memories of my trip over to Wolf Creek Dam two years ago so I could see the Whooping Cranes. Now that is something that I won't forget anytime soon.

Now as for everything else that's on my list of jobs to get finished around, I can't say for sure that all of them will get finished.

Now when it comes to taking my camera with me, you can ask my wife Cindy about that. She says "that I would get lost if I didn't bring my camera along".So I firmly agree with Celia's Law. If you own a camera, and you enjoy photography as much as I do, then you never leave home without it,s the old saying goes. But, I think that I could be guilty of copyright infringement for saying that.

Even though, where I go, my camera goes.

And hopefully soon I will be able to send some images to Columbia Magazine, which is one of the best ways to keep up with the local news and happenings around Adair County. Keep up the good work!
