02-16-05 10:30 am sighting of single flying crane over Bishop Country Club Golf Course. I watched this bird circle and gracefully (ha!)land north of Browns Town Campground in an open field south of Jack In The Box. It proceded to walk southward along a barbed wire fence, presumable foraging. This is a stunningly large bird! Beautiful plummage.
