Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

Sandhill Cranes are resident and migratory birds here in The Villages, FL.  It is not uncommon to see these large birds around the edges of golf courses, especially those near marshes.  Sandhill Cranes often eat grass, seeds, insects, worms, snails and prefer the cut apron areas of fairways.  Occasionally the cranes can be seen on people’s front or backyard lawns!  We do not fence most lots here.  By the way, the photo of the cranes in flight was actually taken at Paynes Prairie overlook on Highway 441 near Gainesville, FL.

These are various photographs I have taken here in the past months of the Sandhill Cranes.  Please click on the thumbnail images to see the slightly larger version of the picture.
