Bird enthusiasts gathered last weekend to celebrate the seventh annual Eckert Crane Days. Although the sandhill cranes proved somewhat elusive, the human attendance was comparable to past years.
The seventh annual Eckert Crane Days, the annual viewing of the sandhill cranes migrating north from New Mexico through Colorado's West Slope, will be March 16-18. Representatives from the Black Canyon Chapter of the Audubon Society (BCAS) will be at the viewing site east of Eckert at Fruitgrowers Reservoir, 9 to 11 a.m. each day, to answer questions and provide binoculars and spotting scopes.
The annual Crane Festival was held over the weekend at Fruitgrowers Reservoir in Eckert.
