Dancing Sandhills

Too busy to write much lately, but here’s a nice show put on by a pair of cranes in our pasture yesterday:
Dancing Sandhill Cranes

These are very big birds. Last year my wife & kids found one that had been injured by a collision with a power line. We took it to MT Fish & Wildlife’s rehab center. Catching an unhappy bird with a beak as long as your hand and wings longer than your arms is no picnic! Unfortunately he didn’t make it, and we spent the rest of the season hearing the mournful calls of his mate. Still, it was a privilege to see such a magnificent bird up close.
