Cranes in the Neighborhood~


Often we hear the unique sounds of the cranes
as they feed and nest
on the tundra across the river.


But they are a shy bird, and we rarely
see them.


After work last week,
we heard their chatter and I spotted them up the rise
as they calmly fed in the brush.


I like the way the hills to the east have such color 
variations this year.


A few days later I stopped
at the Banner Creek Bridge and watched these cranes
up close.


Could it be the same pair?


Every time I see those delicate thin legs,
I wonder how they hold up 
that big ol' body.....
