For years I have been coming to the green swamp in central Florida. So, to see the Florida’s Sandhill cranes is no news to me.
Here at the Wallaby Ranch, we see them often. Recently, though I have noticed a larger number of birds then usual in one spot.
A Sandhill Crane watches a hang glider being towed at the Wallaby Ranch.
Also in the last few years I started seeing them on the most unusual places, such as by the door of the supermarket, or on a sidewalk by the post office. These areas used to be swamp or open field only 4 or 5 years ago.
