The welcoming committee at Chinsegut Wildlife Area. This is the 3rd time I’ve seen these sandhill cranes hanging around the nature center. One is a juvenile and didn’t quite have the red on his face this past summer. It’s great to see the family is still together. I’m assuming they nest somewhere on the lake here.
Later when I was leaving they were hanging around the parking area and I snapped this with my phone.
I’m sure these are some type of weed but they were really pretty along the trail.
It was foggy when I first got there but wore off as the sun got higher.
