Bird, bird, bird

A few more birds at the migratory waterfowl refuge.



Snow goose. These snow geese migrate north and breed on the arctic tundra.




This goose is hanging out with the wrong sort of goose! Harrumph!





Landing.




Mallards!




Here ducky, ducky, here ducky...




Sandhill cranes...



Run away, run away!



These are the cranes in Florida that hung around the house, dumped over trashcans, and would knock on the back door.

They look suspiciously like the Sandhill cranes now at the migratory waterfowl refuge in Fairbanks, Alaska.

Think they followed us?

ha, ha, ha, love the pictures of the birds. And the cranes! They are something, aren't they? They stand in the road like they own it or something :-) And when you try to get them to move, they move VERY slow and then wave their wing at you like saying "take it easy, I'm going as fast as I can." Have a great day!
