It was a dark night, with bright stars shining, but only a lit- tle moonlight. Is it common for cranes to migrate at night? Sandhill cranes from east- em Minnesota winter in Florida and would be migrat- ing to Florida in November. -Carrol Henderson, Nongame wildlife program supervisor" The Southwest MN 4-H Camp will host two sessions of camp at Lake Shetek June 24-28 for third through eighth graders.
