ANOTHER RARE CRANE
Right on the heels of Tennessee’s Hooded Crane comes news of a Common Crane in Nebraska, in the center of the state near Grand Island. Though it has previously turned up in the area on migration, this is the state’s first winter record of this handsome Eurasian species. Many Sandhill Cranes breed in Siberia and winter in the southern U.S. and Northern Mexico, creating a plausible explanation for this bird’s appearance.

OUR NEW HOME
The ABA’s office has just moved to the other side of Colorado Springs, into a much cozier (and more cost-effective) office space in a converted house in the Old Colorado City district at 1618 W. Colorado Ave, Colorado Springs, CO 80904. We welcome visitors—drop by if you’re in town and help us grow the yard list! For more, click here.
