Sandhill Crane, # 31/50

 I found this beautiful young Sandhill Crane posing for me in Miami, near the Crandon Park Beach area.

 This Sandhill Crane was spotted on the road to Dinner Island

 I spotted this Sandhill Crane at the entrance to an Orlando FL hotel. These birds are very elegant and beautiful, and their red crown is easily distinguishable~

Interesting Facts:
A North American species. Much larger than a Great Blue Heron. Pairs dance and call in courtship during breeding season. Florida resident and non-mingatory.


  1. A excellent set of photographs,Rachelle.
