Sandhill Crane Young
Friends, this is a young Sandhill Crane colt who is about half grown. Those of you who have followed my blog know that one of my favorite birds is the Sandhill Cranes of Crex Meadows here in Northwestern Wisconsin. By fall this chick will have a brown head and as an adult bird will appear as in the bottom image. They love the cornfields and pluck the bugs from the leaves. til Tomorrow MJ

MJ…too cute, I have never seen a baby sandhill crane. Love the buff color…….j
I love these birds too, a few nest here in northern BC. What I love most is their eerie song.
Beautiful photos, as always! Thanks for posting.
Wow, what a beautiful bird, great shots! 😀
