Silent Sunday June 7, 2020 Related 11 responses to “Silent Sunday” Wow, They are Beautiful! Great shot! You might enjoy a Facebook group called Birds Blooms Beasts &Bugs How stately and elegant they are! How perfect for their habitat ! OK, I give…what are they? And I will say, they appear married ! Our appmt schedule is about to begin ( open up?) tomorrow; will catch up on doc visits we missed. I was feeling in a hurry already but this couple has portrayed the Lord’s message this morning, “Slow back down, and get a grip, girl !” Thank you, Lori ! Interesting birds, never seen them before, thanks for sharing Lori. Magnificent!! And I agree, what are they? I don’t believe we have them in Texas. Gorgeous! We are bird watchers here and love their serenity and graceful nature. Sandhill cranes. I should have known… we used to see them near Fountain City, Wisconsin..but that was many many moons ago! I never knew what they looked like but I love when they migrate over the Chicago burbs in a very high flock with haunting call You should see their mating dance! It is comical, and their cries are so unromantic to a human. We used to have them in the back field on our ranch sometimes, and I love them. Sandhill cranes…second only to Great Blue Herons in my book of favorites… PS… There is a pond north of Fountain City right by the highway with a parking lot and an observation area. The sandhills hang out there. All sorts of their behaviours can be seen. My motherinlaw loved to go watch at any season of the year, given it was a time when the cranes were “at home.” Adventure for us folk from south GA!! Comments are closed.
