The Greeting Party
These juvenile Sandhill Cranes were just wandering around the parking area when we arrived at Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary. I think they're permanent residents, they're really very tame.
Nice in Lightroom
Thank you to dragonflydreams88 for the following information:-
. these are all "teenagers" . . . and I am told that the mated pair will in all likelihood drive them off as they "mature" as their breeding territory will not allow another "pair" in an area as "small" as Reifel . . . so I guess we will have to enjoy them for as long (or short) as they remain in this area . . .
