2020 Monte Vista Crane Festival

We had a great time hanging out with the Sandhill cranes in the San Luis Valley over the weekend to celebrate the 48th anniversary of my 21st birthday. The folks at the Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge have created habitat for the the crane migration — shallow water features and barley fields. The idea is to make sure that the cranes get a good feed at the start of their migration so that the “Rocky Mountain population” arrives in their breeding areas (Greater Yellowstone) in good shape.

Here’s the Wikipedia page for Sandhill cranes
