Greg Hanisek just (8:08-8:12) called to report that he has the SANDHILL CRANE reported yesterday from Durham.  He found it in a field off Johnson Ln about half a mile from the intersection with Maiden Ln.  He said it was pure luck that he happened to see it; the bird was up on a rise of some sort but would disappear if it took a few steps in the wrong direction.  It was calling intermittently, loud enough that I heard it over the phone.

As Greg described the area there are a lot of small fields with terrible visibility.
