There aren't very many of them, and they're very camera shy, but the Sandhill Cranes are back in the Platte River valley! If you look closely at the picture below, you can see a line of them winging across the sky.
Yes, in the very center of this picture are six Sandhill Cranes. The blackbirds decided they needed to get into the picture too, and I decided what the heck. Let 'em.
Not very exciting, huh? Just wait. Soon there will be thousands, and I'll try to get some good shots of them.
