Reifel Bird Sanctuary – Sandhill Crane

Cranes are becoming rarer these days, yet the Sandhill is one of the few cranes that is still common.

This is the first crane I have ever seen.  I didn’t realise how big they are, and when I initially saw it I thought it was a heron which, I understand, is a very common mistake!!

Tomorrow: Heron
