Sandhill Crane

Why was the chicken afraid?

Because it was chicken.

Interesting Fact: Although some start breeding at two years of age, Sandhill Cranes may reach the age of seven before breeding. They mate for life—which can mean two decades or more—and stay with their mates year-round. Juveniles stick close by their parents for 9 or 10 months after hatching.

  1. I was lucky enough to have these birds nesting on the little ‘lake’ (it’s really a pond) out back last year. I watched them raise two chicks and telling their story was a lot of the reason this blog exists. They are spending the nights out back again, but alas, no eggs, and they are three weeks behind schedule, if in fact there is a schedule for this sort of thing. I remain hopeful though, it was a much colder winter than the last few have been. They are magnificent birds, as your photo reveals!
