Baby Sandhill Crane

This little one is only two days old here and is being fed a tidbit...a grub or an insect, I think. Cute or what? Apparently there were two eggs but only one chick made it. They'd blocked off the path at the Reifel Bird Sanctuary so the cranes would be undisturbed but there were two benches within shooting distance where all us photographers balanced, trying to photograph through the long grasses.
