Photos that I have taken of Birds.

Sandhill Cranes…..

December 8, 2012

“At last a glint of sun reveals the approach of a great echelon of birds.
On motionless wings they emerge from the lifting mists, sweep a final arc of sky, and settle in clamorous descending spirals to their feeding grounds. A new day has begun on the crane marsh.”–Aldo Leopold

Look what you might see while driving around Hobe Sound, Florida!

These Sandhill Cranes were wondering around a neighborhood we were driving through. The warm climate and abundant food supply must draw them to this area.

They did not show any concern when I got out of the car to take a few photos, which truthfully surprised me. Of course I did not approach them too closely.

If it looks like a duck - it might not be a duck!
