I'm way behind on bird photos due to posting Snake Road photos. Here's a pair of Sandhill Cranes greeting each other as one arrived to take over nest-sitting duty from the other earlier this month. I wish the photo had sound! #sandhillcrane #sandhillcranes #crane #cranes #birding #birdingphotography #birdphotography #bestbirdshots #nutsaboutbirds #nikonbirds #citizensforconservation #365barrington ...
