Crested Crane in the yard

This poor crested crane can often been seen circling the valley in front of our house, honking/croaking pathetically. Two days ago it landed in our yard and brought its sad cries a little nearer. Ellie Jo and I had fun watching it through the windows. The mash-up of the bird calling with Ellie Jo saying, “Bird. Tweet-tweet, tweet-tweet” was enough to make me giggle for a long time.

  1. What a totally lush picture! Love how the brick brings out the smack of red on his throat and head. Gorgeous!
