More Sandhill Cranes from the kayak. This time I deliberately avoiding going too close to where I last saw the nesting pair, and instead hit a different area of the marsh. Here I stumbled upon a colony of 8-10 individuals.
(The one on the right seems to be complaining about its day to the others, who are all dutifully listening, The middle one has completely zoned out, though, and is daydreaming about cornfields while waiting for the rant to end.)
