Sandhill Crane-Howell Island CA
 
'Stopped by Howell Island CA at noon today and the Sandhill Crane
was walking along the barrier/fence line at the west end of the parking
lot.
 
She/He spent about 40 minutes dabbling around, preening and
stretching.
 
There was a very interesting, prolonged stretch of the left leg
and wing at the same time and some sort of wing display
with head down in the grass. It looked like an intentional
bit of showing off. <G>
 
Some of the photos I took are here:

A couple of other folks stopped by and watched.
Just wondering if they are also list members?
