You may remember this gang from a past Friday Fences:
We passed the same fence today and were treated to
some Sand Hill Cranes.
|There's always one that seems to go against the crowd.|
|"Walk Like an Egyptian" ran through my head when I saw this line up!|
Just a bit of information for you regarding
these prehistoric birds:
Sand hills are the most common of all the world's cranes. A fossil from the Miocene Epoch, some ten million years ago, was found to be structurally the same as the modern sand hill crane. Today, these large birds are found predominately in North America. They range south to Mexico and Cuba, and as far west as Siberia.
This information is from National Geographic.
