More on Sandhill Cranes

My casino job is a great source of information from both near and far. I stopped by the Three Card Poker table on my way to the break room to tell one of our regulars about seeing the Sandhill Cranes. "Oh yes," he told me, "they've been nesting down at Garvin's Landing all summer."

The lady playing at that table was from Ann Arbor. "Are they rare here?" she asked. "Around us they are taking over the golf courses, just like the Canada Geese."

As I left, I heard the dealer, a young guy from the Upper Peninsula, bragging that he had seen a lot of them up north, as well. Almost out of earshot, I heard him ask the regular, "Did you ever eat one?" I wonder how that conversation played out.....
