Birds of A Feather

These guys were having a good time in the backyard. They acted like they owned it. I thought I would try to sneak a picture, but I didn't have a telephoto lens - no problem. They walked right up to me to see what I was doing. When I stood up they were looking me straight in the eye only abut 4 feet away. Whew.....they are huge birds when you meet them eye to eye. I quietly backed off and let them have their yard back!

  1. In your backyard? Wow! Great picture!

  2. Linda took the words right out of my mouth... you have a zoo, bird park or aviary near your back yard, or are you fortunate to live near a watering hole or along the birds' migration route?

  3. Actually this was in my mother's back yard in Florida. The cranes seemed to have picked her backyard as a friendly place to visit. They seem to be there year around, and are often seen in the morning. Of course you can hear them when they arrive. I was amazed at how noisy and how large they are.
