Ewing Bottoms

Ewing Bottoms is a low area just north of the East Fork of the White River between Brownstown, Indiana, and the hill country of the Hoosier National Forest. It is all private property consisting of farm houses, corn fields, and grazing livestock.

What makes Ewing Bottoms noteworthy is the large number of sandhill cranes that spend the winter here.

As I drove the back roads of Jackson County on Friday, I encountered a sight I’d never seen before: two cranes engaged in courtship dance. I spotted these cranes just off W CR 250 N. The main flock of cranes (title pic) was near E CR 300 N and N CR 25 E.
