Sandhill Crane

    Wednesday on our way home from town we spotted this lone Sandhill Crane out in the marshy field just east of McBride.  Flocks of the cranes fly through the Robson Valley making their turkey like calls as they migrate during the spring and fall, and I think there might be a few that spend the summer.  These are big birds with wingspans of 6-7 feet (1.8-2 meters).  You can see from the photo that they are really well camouflaged in this kind of environment.
