Sandhill Cranes

Sandhill Cranes Walking

I found these two Sandhill Cranes walking across our yard this afternoon. These two Cranes have been with us for about three years. Each year they have two colts (their young ones) they raise and migrate back with, but this year the two colts never made it. They arrive in spring and spend a few months in Palmer Lake, and the rest of the months they leave their nest and move on walking in yards. Around the end of September they migrate back to the southern states until next spring.

This is a photo of one of the cranes early this year at East Palmer Lake park.

I am a nature-loving teen who photographs all the cool nature in Minnesota and around the world. My goal is to share my passion for the outdoors with others. I was an Outdoor Education Intern at Mississippi Gateway Regional Park in the summer of 2022 where I helped with the summer educational programs. I am also active with the Best Buy Teen Tech Center where I do coding, graphic design, photography, and 3D printing. A few of my photos have been published in a newsletter by the Minneapolis Parks Foundation. Minneapolis Parks and Rec has also published my nature photos on their Facebook page. Current Equipment: Canon 90D, Tamron 100-400mm Lens, 50mm Lens
