Sandhill Crane 2011 to 2013

I love watching these huge birds and was very happy to find some come spring this year. The cranes are four and a half to five feet tall and have a six to seven foot wing span. I've added a couple of photos of them taking flight for interest. I've also added some surprising agressive behavior which we observed. That series would not be a high print quality but I found it to be quite an interesting exchange.

    Cindy, really nice job on this group of photos, inviting a "slide show " audience to view their behavior is very interesting.
    What a great "safari" you went on   : )

    Great series of photos. How exciting and interesting for you I'll go along with your stress theory. Seems to me that I've seen that sort of diplaced aggression before while observing groups of birds.
