Sandhill Crane Families

The other day, we were doing some exploring in the car and came across these Sandhill Crane familes strolling down the grass median, across the road, and in someone's front yard.

Baby with Dad

No red crown yet on this baby.

...and off they go....

Then, we saw this family the next day...

Right in the middle of the street. Fortunately, there's not a lot of traffic here.

They came over to investigate

And...lastly, this family of three....

Dad is on the lookout while Mom and baby eat.

Cute little fellow

"Hey Mom...whatcha got there"?

Even though most of the locals zoom right by, we're still taken by them so we'll pull over, grab the binoculars and camera and sit for a while. Hope you enjoyed them.
