Mr. and Mrs. Sandhill Crane visited the SiDet parking lot one August morning and brought Junior along. Surprisingly, they did not visit the Bubble Chamber. They did, however, look around for a tasty snack.

Beginning in August, Fermilab’s Batavia Road gate came under the watchful eyes of several sandhill cranes. As employees and visitors alike passed through the gate, it would be difficult to miss these stately sentinels.
