Two of us went to the Hiawassee Refuge in Meigs county to see the 
sandhill cranes.
 From the gazebo and observation decks, we could not see even one bird. 
Very strange for the info in the gazebo said they should be here 
February and March.
The wildlife worker had told me on the phone, that two weeks ago they 
counted 40,000.
Yesterday.....nothing. And the water levels are up with all the rain.
We wandered around the back roads and observed a few cranes in peoples 
yards and fields, but all told, we observed fewer than 100.

We were not expecting to see  red headed woodpecker, but did spot three 
and that was nice.
