The pair of breeding adult Whooping Cranes, reported by Dan Tallman today, were visible this afternoon from 90th Street East, or Old Dutch Road. Thanks Dan!
This road has two entrances, both accessed from State Hwy 19.
Driving west from Northfield on Hwy 19, make a left turn onto 90th St. E. soon after the entrance to St. Olaf College on your right. The current crane wetland area will be on your left (south) after about 3/4 mile, before you reach Decker Rd.
From I-35, after exiting to Hwy 19 and turning east toward Northfield, take the first road to your right. A sign will say "Hwy 59 East". Drive about 6 miles to the wetland area, which will be on your right (south).
