Sandhill Crane

While walking along the inlet yesterday morning, we heard some strange bird sounds and saw 3 sandhill cranes. I was amazed at how HUGE they are! I managed to get one great photo (and several terrible ones).

I didn't know you had them up in your neck of the woods. Aren't they the coolest?

I don't know about green goats...never saw any close to that color. Most come in shades of brown to black and of course white :) with combinations thereof.

Lucky you! We also saw a huge flock of them as we were leaving Homer this morning! They looked prehistoric! We couldn't get any good pictures though. For some reason I thought they only migrated in the Spring(?) I was surprised to see them this time of year.
