Cook County Crane

The other day after seeing the moose family I continued my drive around some backroads of Cook County and I saw one of my favorite birds, a Sandhill Crane!  I've suspected for a while that there are nesting cranes in certain areas of Cook County, and this one was definitely in an area where they could be nesting.  The grass was so tall, though, that if they had a colt (baby) there is no way I could have seen it.  Still, glimpses of cranes are rare around here so it's always great to be able to see one!
