I wrote about these beautiful birds before. I like them so much that I made a new post for them.
There are two resident sandhill cranes at the George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary in Canada; but many others fly in between late summer and the beginning of winter.
Sandhill cranes are up to 1.5m high with a 2m wingspan. The patch on their forehead is what makes them apart from other similar birds.
In this image you can take a glance of the chick behind. Colts or chicks stay with their parents until they are about 10 months old when they fly to join other cranes.
