The Giraffe Bird

If you are lucky enough to see Sandhill cranes in person, you’ll understand why we call them Giraffe birds. They have extremely long necks compared to their body size.

Sandhill crane colors blend right in with their habitat like swampy marshes or fields close to a source of water. Beautiful birds. This picture was taken in a marshy area just a 1/2 mile or so from Lake Michigan.
