Sandhill Cranes at JKV


These photos are in chronological order!!  Watch how quickly they grew.

2 Days Old!  The 2 cute little guys were born on February 25, 2021 in the swamp behind Lake Fountain. They quickly moved to the far end of the island.

On March 10, Mom was sharing a worm she dug up with them.






Crossing the bridge to the island where they have taken up residence since the colts were 2 days old.






On the island on the sidewalk in front of the gazebo.




When 
When hey were smaller, they used to each nap or sleep under one of Mom's wings.  This one liked to peek out.

Mom sharing a worm.

Crossing the bridge to go home to the island for the night.




They TRY to fly but this was more of a "jump" down from the blocks around the rose garden where they spend time looking for food part of each day.

Waiting for a worn or bug..

Painted concrete pelican on a post inside my screened in porch.  "Papa" has come by several times to take a look in!  This visit was on March 21.



April 3, just over a month old and how they and their legs have grown!



Eating on April 11.

The gazebo and island where they live (on the right end of the island) is in the upper left corner.

April 20, resting in front of the gazebo steps.

"Papa" balancing on one foot.  The younger ones do this also.  See one of them in the next photo.
