  1. I saw these in a cornfield on my drive in to work yesterday, are they a type of crane? It looks like a family of them.

  5. Nice Catch, Yep Sandhill Cranes alright.
     
  6. Yup, a Sandhill family on an outing...:cool: 
     
  7. Can anyone tell if the adults are female and male? they look the same to me although the one on the far right seemed to be more alert to me being nearby and was looking at me hard.

    Nice catch. If you have never seen them dance it is a real treat.

    I have never seen a difference in them. They both look alike.

    What a lucky catch for you
    Very nice images. Two young ones as well
