Just had a look at last night's attempts:
So even if not ideal, try try again?
Post Script - luck?
I went out for a paddle to see if I could meet with some birds:
Trumpeter Swans -
There was a Mute Swan, too -
And then there was a Heron -
And then to rub my nose in it this flew off too -
What does that make me?
The Sandhill cranes sometimes were quite noisy. I do not know what this was all about. It ended after just a few seconds and did not appear to disturb the others. Adults have the red heads, the juveniles, not. (And in the case of WOB, he nolonger has a red thatch,)
On another occasion an adult appeared to be auditioning for crane equivalent of Swan Lake:
Adult and juvenile.
A wonderful experience - W O B !
