Sandhill cranes are fairly social birds that usually live in pairs or family groups through the year. During migration and winter, non-related cranes come together to form "survival groups" which forage and roost together. Such groups often congregate at migration and winter sites, sometimes in the thousands.--Wikipedia

Glen Loyd recently spent time with 82-year-old Bill Stokes, Wisconsin's most famous outdoor writer. When the Chicago Tribune hired him, Stokes told the whole midwest about the beauty of the Wisconsin. Bill was with the Trib for ten years, retiring in 1994 at the age of 63. Currently he is writing two books. This is Glen's third video with Bill. The final one comes next week.

Bill Stokes on Horicon Marsh - YouTube: ""
82-year-old Bill Stokes is Wisconsin's most famous outdoor writer. He was hired away from the Milwaukee Journal to become a columnist for the Chicago Tribune.
One of Stokes' Tribune articles told Midwest readers about the major rivers in Wisconsin, including our Rock River. He also wrote a series about paddling the Rock River from its origins north of Horicon Marsh.
Stokes told me about the trip and read from his book entitled, "The River Is Us," a collection of nature essays he wrote for the Chicago Tribune's OPED page.
