Sandhill Cranes Part 2

dsc_2607

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!dsc_2675-1
