W's Farm Explodes with Birds and Flowers

It was also time to return to the Waltershausen Farm this past week. About three hours east of Minneapolis and across the rolling Mississippi and we were in La Crosse, WI with the magnificent bluffs and hills of the river spreading out in both directions along its shores. W's farm has been a wildlife Eden for my camera and each time we visit I zero in on the flowers and the birds. No comment needed; just look. The orioles and the indigo buntings topped our sighting list, but there were also hummingbirds and finches bellying up to the feeders.

The ultimate find was the family of sandhill cranes on the way to Coon Rapids. Or should we say that we saw them while we were going to Coon Rapids. The cranes did not actually say where they were going.
