Sandhill Crane

The sandhill crane is a beautiful bird that I first saw in January 2018 in Lakeland, Florida. In the summer of 2020, I saw a few more at Lower Klamath NWR in northern California. Subsequently I spent quite a bit of time during the height of the Covid pandemic going to the Salton Sea in Imperial County, California. There I encountered them quite a few times and got some fun photos. I share those photos below:

  1. Your beginning picture raises some interesting questions. Why don't the birds mix up more? Why do they hang out together, but in groups of their own kind? Very human-like.
