I went to Viera Wetlands last week and saw some adorable Sandhill Crane chicks. The chicks are so cute, I could hardly stand it. One kept falling behind and it's parent would go back and get it. Cute!!
Sandhill Cranes... they are EVERYWHERE here. Always in couples with their young ones following closely. You'll see the same family every day, I enjoy the familiarity, just as I enjoy watching the blue jay family in the backyard. I live at an apartment, so there are not many birds to observe. The cranes I do worry about a little, as I often find them standing in the middle of the road! They are very bold! Here are some photos I took a few days ago.
