We found these at the Viera Wetlands in Brevard County, Florida when we visited in mid-March. It's such a cool place... be sure to get there someday! We drove the car loop and happened upon these two Sandhills moseying along the dike as if they owned the place.
I'd been hoping to spot a group of cranes in their migration over Atlanta; tried, in fact, to listen for them anytime I was outdoors in early Spring, but I never got that lucky. Instead I was pursued by two across the dike at Viera... we kept pulling the car forward... me in the grass, backing away in retreat...
These birds are very, very tall.
And not afraid of cameras.
