Greg Weller, one of Wild Warner’s resident photographers, got these terrific closeups of the resident Sandhill Crane family. He writes:
“They are very cute. Have never seen a sand hill crane chick. I heard about them and took a camera.”
The cranes often graze along Forster Drive, and spend a lot of time on the prairie island, the former “fireworks island” where they are not harassed. We believe they nest on the marsh island, protected by the wetland moat.
