Default Sand hill Crane

Not only living and working on our farm gives me a great source of wood , but has great hunting and wildlife to see.
The farm is right smack dab in the pacific duck and geese flyway, but hunting season is over and now the sand hill cranes are coming in.
I had the opportunity to photo a few. I took over 700 photos to get a few good ones. lying in a canal ditch and just lurking round,
The birds are huge the wing span is apx 6' across

Just today we had 3 of them fly over the house, and land in the lake. First sighting this year.
They sound like prehistoric creatures.
Wife saw a dozen Blue birds the other day.
One of our maple trees has started to bud.
Spring is coming.

Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
