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.
