Thanks, Steph.  Where is the Whooping Crane festival?  Here are some storks fighting over something to eat.  But I call it "Stork Rugby."

Thanks Carl for the Sandhill Cranes picture! So beautiful!
Can't wait to see more!
I'm going to the Whooping Crane festival in the spring!
I'm looking to buy a new birding scope - I've been looking online.
Hopefully I can get some good pictures.

Cornell Lab - Winter Bird Feeding

Can anyone recommend their favorite sunflower seed feeder? What shape do you prefer? How do you clean them?

Comment by Karl Ford on November 16, 2012 at 12:46pm

Thanks, Steph.  But like I said, I take pix of birds.  Don't necessarily know a lot about them.  Here are two Sandhill Cranes taking a break, which you don't often see them do at the same time.  Just like when they eat, one usually keeps watch.  The one with his eye open is watching me trying to get close.  I titled it, "Insomnia."  Sandhills are protected here in FL, and they walk around like they own the place. More later!  Karl

Hello Karl thanks so much for joining. Those are wonderful pictures.

You will enjoy it here.

Thanks, Melinda.  I have a lot more, but I won't bombard you with them all at once.  Karl
