Excellent shots, but "Colts"? Really?

Apparently that is what they are officially called.


"Baby sandhill cranes are called colts because of their long, strong, well-developed legs. A day after hatching, colts are already able to run after their parents. Although two eggs are usually laid, more often than not only one bird survives..'

Mentioned in this Federal FWS brochure
http://www.fws.gov …ma/SandhillCran​eFacts.pdf (external link)

and here

I just go with the flow..... :)

Who makes that stuff up, like a "murder" of crows?
Thanks for the links!
