Description
As part of the Sandhill Crane's highly evolved social structure, several families are strategically positioned on the perimeter of landing locations. In theory, it would appear the sentries watch for threats and assure approaching flocks that it's safe to land. On numerous occasions I've watched as they call when flocks are near. This photo is of a vigilant family of Sandhill Cranes.
