Birds of Kentucky: Sandhill Cranes visit, fly over Adair Co., KY

2011-02-26 - Photo by George Rice, Kay Haupt.
Sandhill Cranes are favorite visitors to Kentucky, and much photographed for CM. In the top frame, a flock is on the ground, captured in this photo by George Rice. In the lower photo, naturalist Kay Haupt of Greenbriar Ridge RD, caught the birds in their familiar vee formation. Bob Burt, a Sandhill Crane enthusiast, is calling on other advocates for the birds to write in opposition to a Kentucky Fish & Wildlife proposal for a Sandhill Crane Hunting season in Kentucky. Whether they are good to eat or not is a controversial subject, with critiques from "My dog wouldn't eat it," to calling it "flying filet mignon," and "ribeye in the sky."
