Re: Any News on the Common Crane for 11/21?

Jay, did some looking into and and learned some crane facts. Correct if I’m wrong. Cranes usually migrate by day and may only cover 200 miles a day, relying on updrafts to gain altitude and then glide. If so, we can perimeter potential progress and look for corresponding feeding areas. BTW, one species migrates over the Himalayas at an altitude of 26,000 feet!

Maybe someone will get lucky soon or on a CBC - or maybe we’ll hear about it further S 😁

Same with us.  No Snow Buntings or Lonspurs either.   Single digit temperatures. Very quiet.

Good Strategy Carter !!!     =)

I know this is a stretch ( for comparative purposes ), but our CO first state record Lawrence's Goldfinch disappeared for a few days, TWICE during its two-month stay in Grand Junction, visiting our thistle feeders, but it did keep returning...  the way we knew this was because many people from across the country were looking for this bird every day and were entering notes in our journal....  seems that our bird had settled into a daily schedule of sorts, so might this Crane?  Pls note, however, that was during breeding season for Carduelis species in western U.S..  Different deal here, but who knows?

FWIW,

Hey all,

I just wanted to add some thoughts on the possible whereabouts of the bird. While I do think this bird could be on it's way out, I'm not convinced. It disappeared for a while the first day and was refound. It has proved to be mobile and moves around throughout the day. It does seem to return to the one field however. If it is not seen today I will be out there early tomorrow to check.

A regular sedan is probably fine.  High clearance is not needed but the road can be muddy in the afternoon so the traction from a 4x4 or all-wheel drive would be more secure.

Common Crane Continues: 20 November

Carl Lundblad
 

Jacob Briggs reports (on Facebook) that the Common Crane was still present (and eventually flew elsewhere) near Fairfield this morning.  Jacob's full post follows:
"My father and I found the crane just after 9am today at about these coordinates: 43.300005,-114.732729 . We observed him feeding in a field for about 25 minutes. He eventually flew high out of the field and headed southwest. 
I watched the bird in my binoculars until it was no longer visible in some fog. Quite a few birders showed up after that so hopefully it will be relocated."

Thanks to Jacob and everyone for the continued updates.

Good Birding,

Thanks for the eBird tips, Carl.

Find if I just type "Ada" and add a comma it prompts for Ada, Idaho. Bingo! Like Larry, I noticed the "Top100" button is there on the Explore page.

looks like the " dashboard " is continually changing, which is a serious distraction for geezers who have limited patience searching for / actually finding / once-common functions, e.g.,

looks like Ada County was lost somewhere in the belly of the beast, e.g., #2

where did the " Top 100 " for said county disappear to ?  is it hidden somewhere new ?  or did we simply fall off the edge, into an abyss ? ?  ?

whereas, other counties in other states have not similarly disappeared.........

A regular sedan is probably fine.  High clearance is not needed but the road can be muddy in the afternoon so the traction from a 4x4 or all-wheel drive would be more secure.

Do you need a 4 x 4 to access the road?  Would a regular sedan be adequate?

Carter just reported that the Crane has been seen this morning in the same general area, about 100 yards south of Wednesday’s location.

Hey everybody,

I am unsure if anyone has looked for the bird today yet but I'll let people know here when I do. 

I am getting lots of requests for updates so if anyone is considering looking today or already has, updates here would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

really cool that you found the Snow Buntings … I lost our messenger call but was 20 miles aways and decided that since it was late and not a lifer not to turn around :-)

The Common Crane was still being seen at 2:30pm. Ken Miracle helped get me on it and I was able to get a couple other birders on it before I left. On my way out, at the intersection of the first road off the highway I found a large mixed flock of Horned Larks and Snow Buntings. Snow Bunting has been a 15-year nemesis bird for me... until today!
