A couple of days ago, Joan came home after walking the dog in Koeneman Park and told me she saw a Sandhill Crane in the park. That seemed like a strange place to see a crane, but I figured maybe it was just passing through.
Yesterday, I took Skye to Koeneman Park for a walk and I saw something brown moving across the lawn in the distance and when I got closer I could see it was a Sandhill Crane--it was still there. Normally I think of sandhills hanging around in open wetland areas, not mowed lawns. I don’t know why it is there, but I guess for some reason it suits him.
