Sandhill Cranes

I don't know what it is about me and Sandhill Cranes, but I find them boring. Isn't that strange? These birds are smaller than the endangered Whooping Cranes and prefer open fields and meadows (where whooper's prefer marshes).

My husband went out the last couple of days and found these cranes in a field along one of our favorite birding tracks. He actually has a couple of shots of courting activity -- but for me the Sandhills were their normal selves.

This group appears to be a family. There are actually three birds in this picture.
