Whitewater Draw Crane Cam!

The last time I posted about Whitewater Draw, the over-winter location for tens of thousands of sandhill cranes, I'd mentioned that Arizona Game And Fish has installed a "Crane Cam" to provide 24/7 coverage of cranes and other waterfowl. But it had been offline for a few days... It is now back, and provides a sometimes-amazing view, like last night, showing a spectacular AZ sunset with cranes flocking into the wetlands and their haunting calls coming out of the speaker... The remotely-controlled camera is shown at left from my last visit. Someone obviously controls its pointing and zoom setting, working diligently to keep cranes in view for a good part of the day. But do check out the live Crane Cam by clicking here!
