gorgeous. what terrifically stealthy coloring they have. I don't think we get any cranes up this way, just herons and the occasional egret. I'm a sucky bird photographer though, so don't expect any pictures. ;)

Thanks a lot to all for the kind compliments, glad you enjoyed them.
These cranes are about the height of a Great Blue Heron, but the body is much bigger, especially with the "bustle" on the tail end.

Two lovely birds, I've never even seen a photo of one let alone in the flesh! Lovely brown tones.
