Sandhill Crane (Grus Canadensis)
The Sandhill Cranes, standing about four feet in height, are one of the more numerous large wading birds in Florida. They can also be found in several western and southern states and as far north as the remote Arctic. A family of Sandhills makes their home in and around the pond in back of our home. This is the male of the breeding pair and I caught him at a very pensive moment.
