Sandhill Crane Nest and Colts 2010

We came across this nesting Sandhill Crane pair while out hiking in a marsh. Not wanting to disturb the cranes, we stayed back in the brush and only visited the area once a week. On Mother's Day we were thrilled to find the eggs had hatched and two chicks being taken care of by the parents.

    She's so pretty, I really like the red markings around the eyes : ) Nice detail, Cindy.
