My hubby is the best birding partner I could ask for! Ever since I heard about Sandhill Cranes flocking to the Llano Seco Unit
during their migration, I couldn't wait to see them with my very own eyes. Well, thanks to my hubby, I finally got to see them! It was his idea to drive over to the Wildlife Management Area to see if there was finally some water there.
When we arrived, it looked like they had just started filling it up and there was just enough water to attract exactly what I was looking for. At first glance, I thought there was a group of ostriches or emus in the field! Turns out, they were Sandhill Cranes and they were HUGE! Much bigger than I thought they would be.
It was really windy and the cranes were a little far away for my camera to shoot clearly, but I managed to get a few decent photos.
I've never seen a Sandhill Crane before and was delighted to finally add them to my Big Year list. They make the coolest sound!
More photos coming tomorrow...
