Sandhill Crane

Sandhill Crane Grus canadensis
Grass Lake, Cambridge, ON
5 May 2013

    It was both a pleasure and a privilege to see this immature Sandhill Crane today, meandering through the wetland, feeding and preening as it went. The healthy population of this species in the Grass Lake area, with regular breeding success, is a cause for rejoicing. One never becomes blasé at the sight of this magnificent bird.
