Sandhill Cranes

I was sitting outside and reading when I happened to look up and notice that visitors had come to call.


These two wandered right up close and did not seem at all disturbed when I got up to get the camera.  They can have all the insects, creepy crawlies, and grub-like things they want.

Is anyone working on genetically engineering ants to eat garden weeds?  That would be a useful thing, I think.

  3. A good goose will eat weeds for you. Then all you have to worry about is goose poop.
    I love the Sandhill cranes, especially the sound they make as the fly so very high in the sky.

  10. Oh Olga, you know that you are just rubbing in the fact that you can sit outside in Florida while the rest of us are shivering inside our houses from cold:)

  11. Oh how fun that would be to look up and see those cute cranes and green grass! As I look outside today I see sunshine (Yay!), brown frozen grass, and road salt encrusted streets. It has been and is being a long winter here in St. Louis.

  12. What beautiful birds and they're right outside your home? That's too amazing!

    Ants? We're trying to eradicate fire ants in Hawaii. But weed eating ants would be OK, I think. :-) LOL
