If I didn’t get pictures, I wouldn’t have believed it myself.
While my wife and I were on our way to various locations along the Hudson River, I received an unconfirmed report of Sandhill Cranes in the area. It was one of those rare times that I was within 2 miles of the report. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.
Another report came in giving a street name, so again, we continued our chase. Sure enough, we found a lone photographer (I’m sorry I didn’t get your name!) along the road near a creek. A pair of Sandhill Cranes could be seen right from the road!
We didn’t stay for very long, but I took a ton of photos. This was one of the better ones since the twigs and branches in from of them wreaked havoc on my camera. With eBird stating that I have seen/photographed 194 birds in my life, let’s add one more to make it 195 now. 🙂
