Birds - Whooping Crane
Class:Aves Order:Gruiformes Family:Gruidae Genus:Grus

Photographed these Whooping Cranes on farm land near the Flint Hills. True story: we spent an hourish driving around looking for them. At one point we are easing down the road taking pictures of Killdeer on our right. We start to take off again, all glance to our left to discover that the Cranes had been standing on the roadside on our right and were now in flight. Lousy situation for pictures but we'll always remember it.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
