A pair of Sandhill Cranes were grazing in front of my camper this AM. I scrambled to grab my camera…but the sun was not in the right spot for a great shot. This is the first I’ve seen of sandhills…… quite a thrill! The chick was gawky and adorable. Apparently they regularly wind their way through camp once the campers clear out on Sundays. Hope to see them again.
