They’re Back! and so am I…

The Sandhill Cranes made it back a couple months ago and cause quite a raucous daily. They are loud and flutter all over the meadow chasing off other cranes.

But what’s funny is when I look out over the meadow I’ll sometimes a group of calves scatter.

I think they get spooked when the cranes takes off and I’ll see the cows all chasing their calves trying to find the right one. It’s a funny sight.

They are impressive birds and are quite large.

And are VERY loud with beady yellow eyes.

Most of the time they all get along but it get’s a little National Geographic-ish sometimes out here!

I’ve got one cow to have her calf and then we’ll be done. Now we just have to keep them alive and healthy over the next few months. But the overly stressful part is coming to an end. My calendar is starting to book up with shoots and I am excited about the weather warming up. Even though we have more snow in the forecast, we have made through the worst of it. I hope to get back to being regular here as cowboy season is upon us.

Have a great weekend folks!
