I am at my little farm home in TN. Here are some photographs I have just taken several minutes ago (February 27, 2013). I hope you enjoy seeing the Sand Hill Cranes, lone Ring-necked Duck drake, the lively Canada Geese, and the stunningly beautiful male Eastern Bluebird in flight. The Sand Hill Cranes are making their way back up North and likely there are thousands making the trip. We have seen several waves of flocks. The Cranes will mill around in the sky in groups waiting on the next division of the big flock to catch up. That is why some groups in my photographs are not flying in the regular “V” flight formation.
The Ring-necked drake (male) duck has been around here several times and comes and goes between the nearby lake and this pond. The geese live here but also go over to the lake often. I will be in TN for several days packing up the house so you will still be seeing pictures from TN while I am here. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
