Sandhill Cranes on Autumn Migration

Flora and Fauna Friday: Sandhill Crane

Another unusual Flora and Fauna Friday post this week. A line of Sandhill Cranes (Antigone canadensis) flying to roost at sunset.

Photographed at Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada in the late 1990s. At the time the Quill Lakes region was a major staging area for Snow Geese and Sandhill Cranes on autumn migration.

Apparently the water levels in the lakes is up massively since I was last there. I don’t know how that has affected the birds on autumn migration.

Starting with the Letter – S

This week Patti gave use the prompt Subjects Starting with the Letter – S for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

I quickly had a long list of ideas for the challenge and was considering a couple of different themes to build a post around.

When I realised that one set of three photos were taken in different seasons I decided to go with a set of four photos, one from each season.

Throwback Thursday

A V at Sunset

Throwback Thursday travels back to Saskatchewan in the late 1990s.

A large, loose V of Sandhill Cranes flying to roost at sunset during the autumn migration.

With no internet connection at home I’m slowly working on editing the thousands of slides I copied last winter. I recently finished all the copies with Sandhill Crane included in the keywords.
