Sandhill Cranes


Late last Saturday afternoon Chris heard the honking of Sandhill cranes.  He spotted them circling overhead.  Now we are on the east side of the mountains, far from the river and grain fields they normally search out.  We enjoyed watching them for a few minutes while they continued to circle around seemingly looking for something.  Soon they found what they were looking for in a few seconds were back on their way and over the mountains.  What a beautiful fall treat that was for us.

What a great picture! We have seen (and heard :)) them too, and love watching their v shaped flight. We saw them lots at our other house- with all the corn fields nearby.
