Jumping for Joy

Jump_for_joy

While floating down a stretch of the Snake River in WY we startled this Sandhill Crane who was hidden in the grass on the river bank. They squawked a Sandhill Crane squawk and did a big jump of alarm but given the river was moving us right along they soon had the bank to themselves again.

  1. Great photo! When we on the east coast sandhill cranes were prevalent in our neighborhood. If we didn’t park our car in the garage they’d often challenge us for the drivers seat. And their babies are so adorable.
