Tracking in the Floods

 I woke up early on Friday morning to go out and find some cranes. I was very excited to get a start on my day, but I didn't know how long it would take to find the birds. It turns out there was a LOT of rain the day before. This wouldn't be a big deal, but all of the water was slowly gathering and pouring down river filling all the flood plains... and side roads that we drive on to find cranes. I had to keep deciding whether to drive on the road or take a different route. This time I decided to go for it. (below)

I love going out early on the Refuge! You can see so many cool animals when you go out in the morning. If you can pick out the animal below, you win a special prize!
