Our neighbors at Sands on the Potomac — the neighborhood immediately downstream from us on the Potomac — have seen and made photos and videos of SANDHILL CRANES in the creek in their neighborhood.
Sandhill Cranes are rare here. Watch for them — they most likely will be in Presley Creek, not in the Potomac, although some may be in the Potomac close to shore.
Here is a link with info about the Sandhill Crane.
Sandhills are BIG birds — can’t miss them.
The meadowlarks have returned to the big field behind the houses on Potomac Drive. As of April 17, two pairs have been observed — one near the well house, the other behind the Logan’s at 236 Potomac Dr.
Meadowlarks nest on the ground which is why we prohibit use of 4-wheeleers or any other vehicles in the big field. More info about the Eastern Meadowlark.
