That's a lot of cranes

Sometimes you don't notice stuff that's right under your nose.  For the last few summers there have been a pair of sandhill cranes nesting near our archaeology sites on Baffin Island.  

They're kind of loud, but I look forward to seeing them every year.

I'm back out west and went for a drive around the family farm on Monday and heard a familiar squawking in one of the fields.

Turns out we have dozens of sandhill cranes living in (or at least passing through) one wet corner of our land.

  1. Gorgeous shots, Tim. Specatacular!

  2. It utterly amazes me, sometimes, how far birds can travel. And these ones aren't even done their trip south.

    Gorgeous shots!
