These are very good photos of these birds, which I usually find to be rather skittish; at one time, when Whooping Cranes were endangered, authorities put Whooping Crane eggs in Sandhill Crane nests, and Sandhill Cranes didn't notice that they were different, so even today Sandhill Crane flocks often include the even more attractive Whooping Cranes.

Very nice. The Australian and Asian cranes also have some red around the head although they are all distinct species. It must be something that had its origins a long way back.

Very nice shots, I'd love to go to Row sanctuary in Nebraska for the spring or fall migration, thousands of them there on the Platte River. They offer blinds you can (have to) spend the night in to observe them. Again wonderful pictures.
