Newly Hatched Sandhill Crane

A fellow photographer was kind enough to share with me a location with 2 Sandhill Crane nests recently. I timed it right today and arrived after the first egg hatched this morning. The little chick was up trying to walk around and even went in the water a little bit with several rests in between.

    Cool that both parents were there. Great pics

    Swimming is a necessity for them as their nest is surrounded by water.
    Thanks for sharing. Keep the photos coming.
