The Sandhill Cranes suddenly appeared on Saturday night at twilight (12/14/17) at the little neighborhood Lake Paradise here in The Villages, Florida. I took these pictures at Swartz Park. There were twenty-one Sandhill Cranes in all. The Sandhill Cranes are enjoying the low water levels which make hunting for aquatic insects, small fish, crustaceans, and even aquatic plants, very easy. I believe these are migrating birds. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture. Enjoy!
