Sandhill Cranes

Alongside the cows, there is a breeding pair of sandhill cranes living next door. They have an incredibly loud call – although they’re generally quiet, you can hear it some mornings.

I thought they would fly south for the winter, but apparently not, they’re out there foraging for food today. I was going to feel bad for them, given the cold winter we’ve been having – but then I looked it up and they also live in Siberia.

Pretty birds, though. Not sure what our cats would do if they saw one.
