The Bird D'pot


I took a friend to get her hair cut and as I was waiting for her I heard the calls of several Sandhill Cranes.  When she was finished we drove toward the sounds I had heard and, sure enough, there was a pair right by the road.  They were not at all happy that I stopped to take their pictures and started their loud "yodeling" in disgust ... you know they accuse women of being drama queens ... take a look at Mr. Sandhill ... ya think he was getting a little carried away :)  This was a fun and unexpected capture ... hope you enjoy it.

  14. What great birds - I'd love to see a Sandhill in the flesh (feather?)

    I thought I’d let you know that I stepped into the void caused by Springmans decision to close down World Bird Wednesday by setting up Wild Bird Wednesday (!) on my photoblog at Paying Ready Attention – Photo Gallery.
