Putnam Co. TN
Driving I-40 just west of Cookville yesterday, in the vicinity of Baxter,
mile marker 283, I observed a movement of Sandhill Cranes heading north.
This was one of those days with a strong south wind, and the birds were
taking advantage of it. Lines and "V"s were moving from south horizon
stretching to the north, I did not stop to count, so rough estimate of
numbers seen at least 300.
