Wildlife: Sandhill Crane

These three gorgeous Sandhill Cranes decided to have breakfast in my front yard today. I must have a lot of bugs in my grass because they stayed for almost an hour. LOL

How cool to have something like that in your front yard!

I guess I will have to settle for my chickadees, nuthatchers and dark eyed juncos! But thoroughly enjoyed the pic you shared with us.

My grandson's daddy was raised near the Gray's Lake Bird Refuge in Idaho. They pass by it each time they visit their other grandparents.


The day this was taken my grandson Payton and his brother Parker found this one. I just thought it was such a great picture. My daughter actually took the photo and shared it with me.

I"m thinking it's probably not a good idea to mess with baby animals as it may interfere with the mom's care taking. Not worth a photo op, IMO. :(

These two creatures are beautiful, elegant and they mate for life. Often they come by to look for lizards which they are abundant in the area. Soon they will have their baby chicks.

Beautiful! Where do you live that you get them in the summer? There are a lot of sandhill cranes that winter here in NM, and they come into our neighborhood looking for handouts. Many of the neighbors, including me, feed them whole corn. They're used to me, so they come really close (I could touch them, but I won't). Our grandson loves to ride in my backpack and be up close to them. He holds a little can of corn in his hands (to keep him from getting too excited and waving). (08/10/2010)

This is my favorite picture in a long time, my reason is that rather than the usual National Geographic (which I love) picture of flocks rising over the Nebraska plains or whatever here you have Sandhill Cranes in what appears to be a Real Live Neighborhood, I will admit that I get excited about small things. East Tennessee doesn't run to sandhill cranes, but we do have deer in the neighborhood. (08/10/2010)

This is a baby Sand Hill Crane. I saw it out my window when my grandson Zack said "big bird, big bird!" We saw the mother crane on the other side of the fence and this baby trying to get to her. We finally did have to chase it down to a place where PaPa took a fence slat off so it could get through.

Poor little thing. Glad you were there to help.

Vicki, that was so good of you to help that baby crane. Poor things have a difficult enough time finding places to breed and raise their young, so often they just have to do it among us humans. Not everyone is as nice as you are which is a real pity. Thank you for sharing with us. I'm so glad you were there..
