NestWatch 2016 - a photo journal of Millie and Roy in 2016  

Since 1996, I have kept a record of the activities of a pair of Sandhill Cranes, "Millie and Roy", who summer and nest in Goldstream Valley near Fairbanks, Alaska. 

Millie and Roy returned on April 22nd for their 21st year.
NestWatch 2016 will progressively update their activities over the nesting season.
