From Russia with Love

Or from Japan with love. All the standing in the cold and staying overnight paid off; we saw the Hooded Crane this morning near Linton, IN!!
If accepted this Hooded Crane will be the first North American record!
It was too far away for us to get a picture but another birder had a lens the size of a Buick and we might be able to get a pic on here in a few days.
It looked like a turkey in the middle of the flock of thousands of Sandhill Crane. That's what Liam said anyway!
Next we will be trying for Black-tailed Gull (again), Common Crane, Falcated Duck, LaSagra's & Fork-tailed Flycatchers, American Flamingo & maybe McKay's Bunting up in WA.
