The male surprised me by doing a one hop quick dance to try to impress the female. It was marvelous to see. A few moments later, the pair strolled over to the area where there were a big number of ducks and Glossy Ibis feeding.
The birds were seen and photographed very close to Southbound Morse Blvd. near CR 466, here in The Villages, FL on Friday, March 2, 2018 at around 5:00pm. This pair of cranes enjoys the golf course grass, and proximity to a small freshwater marsh. Please click on each thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of each photo. Enjoy!
