Sandhill Cranes

he sandhill cranes that have been poking around the farm were the closest ever to the house the other day.  I tried to sneak up to them to get a closer picture but this as far as I got.  Dom’s grandfather, Ronald Herman, gave some of his land to establish a protected nesting area for sandhill cranes, outside of Symco, Wisconsin.  I love seeing these birds.  A couple of years ago, a crane took off from a field next to my car as I drove by on the way to work, and flew level with my car just 15 feet away from me for a good chunk of road.  I was so awestruck I almost cried.
