Sandhill Cranes 🐦 Feathered Friday

in featheredfriday •  24 days ago 


During the summer months
Sandhill cranes can be spotted
in Alaska along the Kenai flats.


The many different marsh
grasses make for quite a show
in the late summer breeze.


They come here to breed.

Beautiful photos of the marh wildlife!

Thank you, it's nice when there are some
critters in the landscape, a lot of times it
is empty. Most have left now for warmer
climes! :-)

What a gorgeous photo! I love seeing the Sandhills and hearing them when they fly overhead. Do yours migrate across the Bering Straight or do they go south like ours do? Thanks for posting to #featheredfriday

Thank you very much @melinda010100! I think most the
ones we see fly up from the lower 48. Not sure about western Alaska.
Glad you seen those doves on that other post! :-)

I see the sandpiper!

Awesome eyes! :-)

I see the little Sandpiper! Great photos @shasta and this area looks a lot like the Assateague area here in Maryland except I didn't see any birds like these there. I did see a pelican but it was flying and no such luck for me to get a photo of 😉

Thank you so much @deerjay! Good eyes! Oh I've
never seen a pelican that I know of lol. I would love to the
Assateague, Chincoteague area and all those ponies! :-)

You are welcome @shasta! I was at Assateague last weekend and only saw 2 ponies..only got a photo of one but lots of photos of that 😉

It's so nice to see these birds by the lake, it's very refreshing.

Thank you! They are here for such a short time, already gone now! :-)

Those are great shots! I have never seen a sandhill crane on the ground. I just see them circling overhead. They are stunning birds!

Thank you @goat-girlz! They must have some secret place
to land somewhere near you? :-)

I'm sure they have a place they like to hang out, like a group of rowdy teenagers, but they are keeping it a very good secret. Probably behind the 7-11.
