Sandhill Crane Family Update

Well actually this is a different family, one from McHenry Dam, a few miles west of Volo, but the chick here probably hatched about the same time as the other little one. They grow about an inch a day. In this photo he's huddling with the parents, but it wasn't long before he took off into the tall grass on his own, and the parents didn't seem to mind at all.

I stopped at Moraine Hills on the way back, and found this little guy. Cute, isn't he?
