Fall migration is underway!
Harlan County Reservoir sits in the middle of the "aerial highway" called the North American Central Flyway, used by hundreds of bird species for their spring and fall migrations. American White Pelicans have been passing through in abundance and Sandhill Cranes can be heard overhead. Keep an eye out for eagles, which usually start arriving in December but sometimes arrive earlier.
