Sandhill Closeup

sandhill face detailed fro jimFriends, this sandhill crane was very close to the road, so I just had to take his picture, nice portrait, don’t you think?  He was rooting in the mud for food but had cleaned off his bill for the photographer.  About 12000 of these birds have gathered in Crex Meadows to fatten up before their long flight south. til Tomorrow MJ
