Sandhill Cranes

I am almost finished
with the photographs from Texas.

Remembering the Sandhill Cranes brought a smile
while I was outside counting birds this afternoon.
Our time at Aransas Wildlife Refuge was incredible.

I am thinking about our next trip.
We plan on visiting Portland, Oregon in March.

I put some dried cranberries out this morning.
The Robins do enjoy them.

I have my count ready to post.
No Sandhill Cranes in my backyard.

Lucky you to be traveling to Oregon next month! I hope you bring back some happy pics for us to see.
That robin looks like he's enjoying that cranberry. I put some oranges and apples out for the birds, but they froze. Will have to wait til it warms up a bit more!

The picture of the Sandhill Cranes is stunning.
I love the others as well, but the first is my favourite.

such great shots. we used to have sandhill cranes that lived in our neighbourhood when we lived in florida. they are fun to watch.
seeing your robin eating cranberries is so cool.

You could always watch for flyovers of Sandhills during migration Sherry. That would be exciting to see. I bet all your backyard birds are glad the restaurant is once again open.

Nice photos Sherry!

I put out dried cranberries, dried cherries and raisins and the Robins love them.

Thanks for stopping by my site.
