Documenting a hike around local bog and the wildlife seen along the way

Weekend Nature Walk: Sandhill Cranes on the Lake

By tych0_21 | MyMiscellaneousBlog | 19 Apr 2021


I went out to a nature of preserve near my home to take some pictures of the migratory birds that stop by to rest on the lake. This time I was lucky enough to come across a small group of sandhill cranes.

These are a few photos I was able to take of them before they flew away.
