Sandhill Trio

January 07, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Tuesday, Judy and I went to Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge near Decatur, Alabama, 100 miles south of our house. We met up with Susan Hay and Emily Helms to photograph the sandhill cranes and other birds that are spending the winter in the south. Sandhill cranes are large birds, can stand 4 feet tall and have a wingspan of over 7 feet. Last year 12,000 of these birds wintered at Wheeler. This is only one of the hundreds of photos that I took. I like the new lens and this shot was even through the thick glass of the observation building.

I'll be sharing some more photos this week.
