Mom and the kids

Dad and one of the babies is "out of frame".

We got home this afternoon and they were all gone... maybe they will come and visit tomorrow?

mom, dad and the kids

We are Grandparents...

Again this year our mom and daddy geese returned and hatched 8 youg'uns. Here they are clambering up the hill and moving away from the pond. As you can see, Mom and Pop were very wary the first day.

Thought I had posted this picture... but I can't find it here... so I guess not.

Here it is (or here it is again).

sand hill crane

There is a place in one of our county parks where I like to go. If you go and sit for a while the pictures will come to you. Last Friday (Good Friday) I saw about 5 deer in a herd. They were too far away to get on the camera and moving through tall grass and the woods.

However these two cranes came and landed across the stream. These things make the most awful noise. I assume it is to scare off any would be predators. When they get sacred or concerned they make the same noise.
