Ghost Birds

Here they come again…heading north. This morning’s flight was the first group I’ve seen…actually heard because they are so high you can’t really make them out. Their croaking call seems to come from nowhere and everywhere at the same time. They seem early but we are already into the 70s each day. They must leave Bosque del Apache at dawn and make it here north of Albuquerque by 10:30. They might make it to Colorado by sunset if they can get over the mountains..

High cranes 2

Cranes, lost to our sight

in the sun drenched sky above,

call out sad farewells.

high cranes

They’ll be back next fall

to do it all once again.

The bosque awaits.
