Local birders report rare sighting

Hooded crane—a native of Siberia—spotted in open fields near Carey

A dark-gray-and-white hooded crane, left, walks through open fields east of Carey alongside a sandhill crane earlier this week. Hooded cranes are native to Siberia. Local birders who made the very rare find have touched off a spirited debate about whether the crane is a wild stray or an escapee. Photo courtesy of Kathleen Cameron
