The cranes came by for a visit this morning. They drank from the bird baths, cleaned up under the bird feeders, and aerated the lawn for me. The light changes in the photos because they were here for over 2 hours. From what I’ve read the more rare, endangered sandhill crane is found in central Florida in the summers, but during the winter there are two types here. Apparently even a trained biologist has to get pretty close to tell the difference. Glad to see that mom, dad and baby crane all seem healthy and happy.
