Flight of the Sandhill Crane
"Flight of the Sandhill Crane", the 4th song on the cd "Mountains Take Wing" (click on free streaming song in Music Store) was inspired by the summer residents and migrating flocks that come through our part of the country. Such graceful birds, you can recognize their call well before you see them (flying as much as a mile high). I have not yet had the pleasure of seeing them flock near the Nebraska Sandhills but it is apparently a magnificent event. This is a simple song I wrote for a bird that, for me, is the harbinger of spring. I cannot even attempt to capture their true glory. Please enjoy. Listen. Relax. Envision flight.
