SANDHILL CRANE FLY IN - Lodi, California
During Fall and Winter evenings, numerous Sandhill Cranes fly into the fields West of Lodi, California. They settle in shallow waters for the night to eat and avoid predators. They are graceful tall birds and the Greater Sandhill Cranes can stand up to 5 feet tall! This evening, the sky turned a dark rich blue and I was able to capture these cranes just prior to landing.
