"Joy" by Michael Forsgerg. Sandhill crane in a mating dance.
Baby sandhill crane from the USGS Patuxent Wildlife Research Center.
Mother & Chick. Another one by Michael Forsberg. Damn, he's good.
A way cool sandhill by Arthur Morris at Birds As Art
Update: By the way, I'm not going to Kearney to see the sandhills; that's just a perk. I'm going to try to beat some sense into childcare providers so they don't turn the next generation into a bunch of Jeffrey Dahmers, which is, basically, what I do for a living.
