A Tight V

cranes tight v

Friends, first , thanks for all the birthday wishes.  i had a great day.   Jim and I went to Crex for dawn and watched the cranes leave their roost site in the morning.  This image was taken the night before when the cranes were coasting into their roost site.  Three natural history facts are in this photo, cranes fly in a v formation, they coast before landing and they talk to the birds below to warn them of their landing.  so til Tomorrow MJ
