Lately I have had the good fortune to observe Sandhill Cranes and Canada Geese in action. They have been checking out the ponds on our farm. The geese in particular have been enjoying swimming in the ponds, and the Sandhill Cranes have been merely onlookers.

I was able to get pictures of both kinds of beautiful birds:

Happy Birdwatching!
