Where do the cranes nest? Any of you people from the great white north have them in the summer? There are over 100 of them spending some time here on my farm. I have a 20 acre lake and some wet weather ponds at the back of the farm, and they are feeding in the corn stalks. Afternoons are spent in grassy areas just hangin' out. This is the first year any stayed more than one day, and never this many. The State has a big refuge area for them about 40 miles north west of here. They have as many as 14,000 at one time in the fall. but less in the spring..
