The Sandhill Cranes Are Back

I took the kids on a bird watching expedition this afternoon to see the sandhill cranes that migrate through here every year. I look forward to these birds every spring. Their call sounds almost prehistoric; I always imagine that a pterodactyl would sound similar.

I was a little late getting out this year, so we didn’t get to see as many as we have in previous years.

There are a few more photos on my flickr stream if you are interested. I might go out again this weekend and see if I can catch a few more photos of them before they head north.
