beautiful migrating sandhill cranes

right now our village is home to hundreds of sandhill cranes. they are everywhere, but they particularly like this one vacant lot. i think there were over 200 of them gathered at this site, happily poking away for subterranean delicacies this weekend. they make a really interesting sound--kind of like the sound effect for the velociraptors in jurassic park. very relaxing and pretty to see.

(p.s. thank you, dawn, for reading my rants!)

  1. I've been told that when they take off to fly, they look like the flying monkeys in "The Wizard of Oz".
