Sandhill Crane Invasion





Justin, dad and I were outside last saturday, stacking and splitting firewood like we do every chance we get, and there were 2 cranes walking around the neighbors yard that we were watching off and on. Then we were standing there and a flock of 9 cranes flew over, saw the other 2, and started circling lower and lower until they just "dropped" onto the ground in the neighbors yard by the other 2. It was so cool to see 11 cranes walking around the yard. They picked the yard for a long time getting all the bugs they could.

How awesome. I can't even imagine seeing such a sight right in your own back yard. Love grandma Marilyn
