Sandhill Crane Ready For Takeoff
Photo By Richard Hunt

  • Title: Sandhill Crane Ready For Takeoff
  • State/Province/Region: Florida
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Hidden Lake
  • Nearest Town: Dade City
  • Brief Directions: Travelers Rest is north and west of Dade City, FL, just west of I-75.
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Description: While I was camping at Travelers Rest RV Resort near Dade City, FL, a pair of Sandhill Cranes chose to next nearby. I was able to follow their progress daily, and to record them from mating dance, to nesting, the hatching, and emancipation. The male and female taking turns on the nest for feeding and exercise sets a good example for human families.
  • Gear: Nikon D-200, 18-200 VR Zoom
