We have a few thousand Lesser Sandhill Cranes that stop over in Eastern Washington for a few weeks on their migration back North. They feed primarily in the stubble of the harvested corn fields. Our weather has rather sucked here this year so far, so Nancy and I decided to head for the East. Saturday was rather dreary, cloudy all day, slight drizzle, but yesterday dawned bright, clear and rather chilly. Here are a few Flights Shots as a group of a hundred or more left one field we watched for an hour or so. This one was shot by Nancy, I like it - D200, 200-400 F4 AFS VR + TC-14E: Here are a few of mine - D200, 400 F2.8 AFS-I + TC-17E: This same area has Burrowing Owls, boy did we get some cool shots of those, American Kestrel, and lots of other stuff. Nice weekend, and then we come home to snow in the pass, and snow this morning. This is April, isn't it?????
