Big Birds

These Sandhill cranes took their time crossing my path while I was trying to exit a parking lot. I don't think they understand "move!" or "hurry up!". They have one speed: s-l-o-w. So, I sat there for a minute and enjoyed watching them.

We have quite a few of these wading birds in our area. They are beautiful, but they can also be a nuisance when you are clipping down the road and, suddenly, there's one right in front of your vehicle. It's no wonder that they are a threatened species in Florida. They are large, I guess around 4-5 feet tall when fully grown, and they make an amazing trumpeting call. It's pretty neat to see them flap their large wings and take off.

Wow, those birds are TALL! And LOL I can imagine that they don't keep the same kind of time schedule that we do. ;)
