Readers’ wildlife photos

Happy Easter! The good news is that I had crispy dosas with coconut chutney for breakfast. The bad news is: you didn’t.

Once again, as I head out to the airport, this time for Bhubaneswar, I’ve received some photos from Stephen Barnard.

Sandhill Cranes (Grus canadensis) this morning, just across the creek. I’m hoping they nest here. They’ve been hanging out. Their chicks, called colts, are super cute.

  1. Beautiful cranes. I suspect that this pair will nest there. They have that ‘settled down’ look to me.

  2. Deplorable as it is to many, some states have hunting seasons for the cranes. Fortunately Nebraska and Iowa do not, as best I know.
