Another great find for birds was the adult Sandhill Cranes with their "teenager" that Michael Hogg, Steve Bailey and I saw during the bioblitz.

Plus, we had many Bobolinks, a species that winters in South America and is one of the fastest declining songbirds.

The diversity is the key here, with wetland, savanna and woodland species all being found during the breeding season at the Savanna.
