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.
