Dad and Mom Approach

Oct. 23, 2015, at the Ridgefield NWR.  I was listening to, and watching, some Sandhill Cranes out in (dry) Rest Lake when a group of birds came flying in to join those on the ground.  This is a male and female coming in to land.  Right next to these two was a youngster, which I’ll try to post a shot of in the future.

For a close up look at these birds, be sure to go to the LARGE VIEW and click once on the image for a zoomed in view of these birds in flight.
