Yep you got it, my little girl calls them cry babies, they have a distinct call.

This is true, they land in my backyard periodically and start raising cane until you offer them something to eat.

Birds in flight? (I'm getting pretty good at this!)

I've had practically no luck getting a good shot of a bird in flight.

The cousin's complaints are crane poop on her deck and cranes tapping at their reflections in the sliding glass doors.

My dogs would go insane if there was a crane on my patio tapping on the glass. The poops I could just hose off but the tapping on the glass.... eesh... been down that raod before with some cute little geese we thought were so sweet that we fed. Maybe that cousin could tell everyone to stop feeding em before they get aggressive demanding hand outs from everyone? Board up services aren't cheap.

wise owl

My nephew is attending college and one of his class assignments involved an owl banding project. His plans are to major in Forestry. Here's a cool photo he sent me:

Today I saw:-dscn1031.jpg

I enjoyed catching up on all the photos in this thread today. Great pictures everyone!
