April is Kachemak Crane Watch

Cranes are winging their way North. Watch for the first arrivals in the next few weeks and let Kachemak Crane Watch know by calling 907-235-6262 or emailing reports@cranewatch.org.  This is the most reliable way of making sure important sightings make it into our citizen science information for the year.  Date, time, location, behavior and number of cranes is helpful.  Happy crane watching!
