our colts are thriving
our sandhill crane pair that made a nest in our cattails had babies. they’re called colts because of their long legged awkwardness. the colts will grow one inch per day for the next month. imagine! they will be over three feet tall by august. we are giving them full run of the back yard and trying not to disturb them too much. so all i have to show for all this excitement is another feather, left in our grass, as a peace offering by one of the parents.
