Crane Explosion

Dear Friends, found the cranes on a cornfield and abruptly at 4pm, they all left in a huge explosion of wings and calling.

Black and White Cranes

Dear Friends, these sandhill cranes were only ten feet from our vehicle and were busy rooting in the mud for seafood to eat.  The mud is still clinging to their bills, now you see why they have long stout bills that don’t break when they hit a rock.  Do you like black and white treatment?  tilTomorrow MJ
