I drove from Cleveland, Tennessee south to Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia between
3 and 4 this afternoon. As I left Cleveland, I saw thirty to forty sandhill
cranes flying North in three well formed V formations over a mall parking
lot. We saw several other flocks of cranes in route.  When I stopped at a
Wal-Mart in Georgia, there were numerous V formations flying overhead as I
ducked inside for about 30 minutes. When I got back to the car,  there were
even more flocks of fast flying (with the assist of a strong wind) cranes
headed northeast into Tennessee in a wave of V formations.  I saw between
200 and 300 in about 10 minutes. This is an unusual number of flights in
this particular area which is just 2 or 3 miles from Tennessee. Looks like
we aren't the only ones glad to see the cold icy weather offer a break today
ahead of heavier rain later.
