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.
