There were several new arrivals this week and I got a few good shots.
Sandhill Cranes & chicks.

Hi GW,

I hear all kinds of reports of Sandhill sightings in my area, but have never seen one myself, so seeing this shot with the chicks is pretty special. Nice job!

You're quite right Patty, and they have quite a population of Osprey here too. With the stiff breeze we had today, we got to watch them hang in mid air while they targeted there prey and then dive into the water and come up with a fish. it's pretty amazing the size of some of those fish look like they would be too heavy for them to fly. none of my shots were any good of the action, just blur.




But it was fun to watch!:-)

Wow, great pics as usual, GW. I see an osprey perhaps once or twice each summer. And I get the impression that you see them almost every day!

Wonderful shots - love the crane family. The interesting thing is that bald eagles can drown because they hook too large a fish. I suppose the same thing could happen to an osprey, too.
