Nice sandhill shot. Reifel is a great place to see birds, the winter months are the best, but anytime you are bound to see something interesting. As Randy says the backgrounds can be a bit busy, but there are lots of places where you can get open shots. BTW those sandhills are so tame they will come right up to you. This being breeding season I expect they will get more aloof and aggressive.

cheers,
alexis and Georgie Beagle

Thanks for looking in. Regarding backgrounds, absolutely. But, when the bird is where it is sometimes you don't have much choice and this was probably the best of the bunch. Alexis, I have one photo of this particular bird eating out of a kid's hand. :eek:

We're about an hour and a half away from it. I have one photo of a crane sitting on a nest that's in the middle of a channel of water. I've no idea how deep the water is or how long it will take the colts to grow large enough to ford it.
