I don't know if I'd recognize it for what it is... unless a swan was sitting in it.

Hey, guys, don't forget to look at the other topics I posted the other day. And speaking of sandhill cranes, as Husker was, has anyone ever read that marvelous small book about them? Can't remember either author or title though.

Excerpt from A Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leopold
"The sadness discernible in some marshes arises, perhaps in their once having harbored cranes. Now they stand humbled, adrift in history.

"Someday, perhaps in the very process of our benefactions, perhaps in the fullness of geologic time, the last crane will trumpet his farewell and spiral skyward from the great marsh.

"High out of the clouds will fall the sound of hunting horns, the baying of the phantom pack, the tinkle of little bells, and then a silence never to be broken, unless perchance in some far away pasture of the milky way
."
--Aldo Leopold, Marshland Elegy

Yes, of course I am, ehBeth, and that quote is lovely too. I just hate it when my brain goes all senile on me. Yuch! I have read that book many times, although I don't know where it is now.

Another favorite of mine is set on Cape Cod, called something like "The Outermost House", by.....whomever.

A nesting pair of Sandhill Cranes took up residence this past spring here on The Timber Estate. Some six generations of carefully bred and tended Garden Pond Koi are now craneshit. I am unhappy. The cranes will certainly return. I have a plan.
