Crowned Cranes

Hello to my blogger friends and especially to Eileen.  I was so thrilled to see this bird for the first time since moving to the farm more than two years ago. Ronnie had told me she sees these, a pair of Crowned Cranes, her favorite birds here on the farm. 

Two weeks ago I was walking my dog, Skabby and heard the Crowned Cranes calling. After I'd brought Skabby home, I grabbed my camera and walked up to the gate from where I could see the paddock. This, Ron assured me, was where they were most often seen. 

And sure enough...

Happy Saturday to you all!
