My Mother has had the pleasure this summer to host two Sand Hill Cranes in her open field and will be sad when they leave for the winter!
From early morning to near dusk the cranes graze either in Mom's field or in her neighbor's yard.
The cranes have a distinct loud "voice" and a unique flying pattern. When they fly, their legs are straight out behind them...so interesting to watch.
A majestic bird indeed!
I hope all of you can enjoy viewing these birds sometime!
