A little after 11:00 AM I heard a faint, but familiar sweet sound while working in my outdoor office. Excitedly I panned the sky searching for the source. Above and headed south was a flock of Sandhills, returning to the Delta from their summering grounds in Northern California and Southern Oregon. It's been months since I last heard them leave, flying north, leaving us for the summer and singing their goodbyes. It is such a sweet sound and a heart warming sight to hear and see them again. Amazingly as I checked on the time of sighting their departure it was within minutes of the time of their departure exactly 199 days later.
Welcome home, we are so looking forward to communing with you again. - WGM
