The cranes aren’t the only thirsty ones this morning.  Does anyone else have to keep a spare glass of water just for the cat on their desk, or is it just me?

  1. Cool. Its amazing how comfortable these cranes can be around people. I think it’s a good thing and love seeing them wander around, finding food in yards and roadsides.
