Sandhill Crane Pair With Chick
Photo By J Michael Jordan

  • Title: Sandhill Crane Pair With Chick
  • State/Province/Region: Illinois
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Lake County
  • Nearest Town: Volo
  • Brief Directions: From Routes 12 & 134, go south on 12 to the first right(there is a sign pointing) about a mile and a half down on the left is the entrance.
  • Notes: Walk the Bog Trail, then attempt the Tamarack trail. It can sometimes be blocked by high water.
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Description: Volo Bog State Natural Area is quite close to my home. It is, I believe, Illinois' only bog. It is home to several Endangered Species. In the spring Sandhill Cranes nest here, and I was fortunate to have captured this family group last May. There are several trails and I captured this image at an observation platform recently erected. I was so glad I had my long lens mounted that Morning!
  • Gear: Nikon D200, Sigma 70-200 2.8
