There are several pairs of Sand Hill Cranes that frequent our rural neighborhood each year. This pair is fond of the fields located next to the farmette in yesterday's post. The image is a little blurry because I had to zoom in quickly once I heard their throaty, garbled warble above me as they came in for a landing. Highly entertaining birds!
You can see all SkyWatch Friday entries here.

These pictures are great! Birds are so hard to capture in flight.

GREAT crane photos. They are big, I know, but they even look big in the sky--wow!
We are expecting two days of sun in Minnesota and plan to ride our motorcycle along the Mississippi River--hope you have the same great weather in WI.

@Noni: Thanks for your visit to my blog. Have a safe trip down the Great River Road! :-)

@Judy: With my slow reflexes, usually by the time I hear them or get my camera out, they're gone!
