It May Look Like I’m Doing Nothing. But In My Head, I’m Quite Busy.

Sandhill Cranes 

Why are baseball players so cool?

They always have their fans there!

Interesting Fact: During migration and winter the family units group together with other families and nonbreeders, forming loose roosting and feeding flocks—in some places numbering in the tens of thousands. Eggs, nestlings, and injured or sick adults may be hunted by foxes, raccoons, coyotes, wolves, bobcats, crows, ravens, eagles, and owls. Cranes attack aerial predators by leaping into the air and kicking their feet forward. They threaten terrestrial predators by spreading their wings and hissing, eventually resorting to kicking.

  1. I love sandhill cranes. My dad always fed them on his yard before he passed away. Now I see them roaming in pairs around the town and since they’re endangered here (not sure if that’s worldwide) no one can touch them so they tend to back up traffic lol

    • That is so cool, thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your story with us. I am sure every time you see them it reminds you of your dad. Hold on to those memories and Happy Blogging! 🙂

  2. This composition is truly outstanding. The clarity of the foreground Crane is in such stark contrast to the blurry background Crane that the details just pop out in near 3D effect. I was especially taken with Crane’s brilliant golden eye.

  3. IT MAY LOOK LIKE I’M DOING NOTHING. BUT IN MY HEAD, I’M QUITE BUSY. ……. reminds me meditation time ……. nice picture with fine composition ……. love all.
