Eye to Eye - Sandhill Cranes

Karyn and I just returned from nine days in Yellowstone National Park. This is the first in a number of posts on what we saw and experienced.

On our first full day in the park, we found some very friendly Sandhill Cranes. I had never been within a 100 meters of a sandhill before, but these walked right up to the road. These birds are majestic and goofy at the same time. I like everything about them. Their call is amazing. It makes me pause every time I hear it, especially from about 10 feet away! Enjoy!
