This is a Sandhill that lives by my house. I see him almost daily. They're all over the place but this guy is distinctive as you can see....he's missing a foot. Doesn't seem to bother him much, he gets around just fine.

Nice shots!


nit picking here but:

Herons, Egrets and Bitterns = Ardeidae ie: same family

Cranes = Gruidae, not even the same order.

Just saying.

And we can't even change the name.... Oh well, don't know why I thought Cranes were in the same family.

I don't know why I like this one but I do. Not a great pic. Focus is off but I guess I like the background.
