Calling Crane

calling craneFriends, this Sandhill crane was right by the road when i jumped out to photograph him.  I like the feathers in the tip of his bill, he is molting his summer coat stained with red-iron water.  Soon he will be handsome gray all over and ready to move further south.  Til then we enjoy the flocks of cranes that spend the fall in Crex and surrounding areas.  He was calling and i love the red eyes.  til Tomorrow MJ
