Monday proved to be an interesting day!
We ventured forth to photograph the news that two whoopers were on Alachua Lake only to find a "different bird" along side the Sandhill Cranes.
The bird took-off from a point 400 yards East of the LaChua Platform. I managed to get a few distant pictures of the bird's climb-out to the East - which was followed by a turn to the South. I lost visibility in the hazy day so I can't report a landing or beginning of a trip further South.
