Leggy cranes returning to San Luis Valley | Colorado Springs Gazette, News

"With its bubbling waters, soaring dunes and dazzling peaks, the mystique of the San Luis Valley becomes complete when its winged migrants arrive. Sandhill cranes flock en masse to the valley, followed by admiring birders from near and far.

The birders mark their calendars for the three-day Monte Vista Crane Festival, which starts Friday."

"From the Ski Hi Building, at 2389 Sherman Ave., Beauchaine and staff will lead tours to the refuge starting at 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Anyone can drive themselves through the 14,800-acre wetland, specially prepared by farmers who lay barley for the birds, which typically linger into April.

The refuge's pulloffs are expected to be packed with some of the estimated 2,000 binocular-wielding, camera-equipped people at the 35th annual festival."

This would be worth seeing.
