Lesser Cranes they may be, but they venture closer to the road

Lesser Cranes close to the road

than their larger look-a-likes, the Greater Sandhill Cranes.

Crane Brunch

Superstitions abound on this day,

Cranes facing North

but only the fool-hearty fly away.

It's Friday the 13th?

“Stand your ground!”

When It Rains Cranes

Sandhill Crane rain

When it rains Sandhill Cranes, even thunderstorms take note.

Cranes On The Fly

Lord knows how long this migration party’s been going on.

Cranes Over The Platte

The Platte River itself is giddy over being the chosen haven for a spell.

Crane Hill

The lowly hills bow down to receive this ancient blessing.

Cranes in clouds

Even after the cranes call it a day, one is left with a sense of hope.

Twilight on The Platte River

The river silently agrees.

Crane Crazy

Uncle Tree's OMG! moment

I’m from the Get-Down and Show-Me State of Missouri, where seeing is believing,

and believing is colorfully Royal, and royalty tends to turn every Tiger in the tank

into a Chiefly loyal mascot, as if it were a Cardinal rule.

Well, dear down-home folks, crane your necks and take a look at these

Sandhill Cranes, as they flit and soar like a swarm commanded by Moses!

Blessed be…
