Thx especially to the cam operators.  It's a special talent to see movement, focus and hold the frame.  Greatly appreciated.

Sandhill Crane baby Colts bedtime.  A feathery down Moma bed.

Heard on the radio that the Upper Mississippi is supposed to rise a foot due to Minnesota snow melt and spring rains.  Hope the sandhills find some higher ground.  Mom's current roost will be under water.  :(

The SHC colts can swim - paddle, I believe, so they should be OK if the water rises.

Same scenes for several days. Noon today, a good closeup of three young BEs preening.

FYI -- the Marshall Missouri turkey vultures have hatched the two eggs in the past couple of days.  The chicks seem OK and are feeding from the parent(s).  See one pic here, and go to the Forum page for more. "Other Raptor Cams and Information"

Early morning, checking the rewind for the sandhill crane family, I found two parents and one colt in view.  Could be a different family of course, or the second colt wandering out of the view, or fallen as prey.  Anybody with more information?

Unless something has happened since sunrise this morning both colts are fine.  They seem to stick with a parent and fight when they're together.  :)

Thanks, eburg, I will check the rewind again.  Always want to see chicks grow to adulthood.

You are correct, both chicks in very early AM pic, see yellow arrows.  Barely visible, so catch the motion on the rewind.  One of the chicks has a limp.

Sandhill crane family on the video rewind very early this morning. Turtles basking and all the regular birds on this lovely day.  Closeup of a mallard female and a blue-winged teal male shows the size difference.  BWT are really little.

Rainy morning on the flyway.  SHC family feeding just after daylight, but no pic.
