Sandhill Cranes

video

[Turn Up The Volume]

The video is only one minute long, so if you have that minute to spare, please watch it. This could be my new obsession. I took eighteen videos today, four alone of this pair of Sandhill Cranes. It is unusual for them to approach people like this, so this was a real treat for me.

Wow that is such a great video! I really enjoyed it! I love birds and I can't believe you got that close to them. That one crane looked and sounded like he was yelling at the passing cars! Thanks for posting it.

Maybe they approached you because they had heard of your obsession with redheads. :)
(I couldn't resist.)

That was awesome! I am in the Fort Myers area and I've seen pairs of sandhill cranes periodically, but ever heard them before. Thank you SO much!
