These were taken near Othello Washington, every year they have the Othello Sandhill Crane Festival, this year it is the weekend of March 24. The cranes migrate from California to Alaska and stop over in the area to rest and feed in the corn and wheat fields. The cranes can be four feet tall with a wingspan of up to seven feet seven inches. They are fun to watch as they come in to land and as they jump and dance around.

They winter here in the valley.

Excellent series of photographs on the subject of Cranes.
I particularly like the last photographs.
Well taken.

Thanks Bozsik. Is it a big deal when they arrive in your area in the fall? Hope you get to photograph them.

Thanks Leicaflex. We were at an overlook to see the sunset when the cranes started coming in to roost in the valley below. Here is another one, hope you like.
