A Modified Letter to the Editor of Kamloops This Week published April 25, 2018
By Rick Howie, Registered Professional Biologist
I read with interest the comments by Hugh Jordan in Kamloops This Week regarding the Sandhill Cranes passing over Aberdeen recently. Indeed, it is exciting to see and hear these magnificent birds passing overhead at this time of year as they have done annually for thousands of years. April is the peak month for spring migration. Most of the birds normally pass just a bit west of Aberdeen enroute north but occasionally, winds will cause some flocks to drift over the city as I have observed on numerous occasions.
