    I've never seen a Sandhill Crane chick before. They are incredibly cute and incredibly awkward - an adorable combination. Backdoctor took Flew and me on several wild goose (crane?) chases looking for this guy and its parents with no luck. After we gave up we accidentally found all three standing at a street corner. Enjoy!
