Along The River - Sandhill Cranes

Two weeks ago we had snow and temperatures in the minus 20's (-4F).
 
Yesterday, it was sunny and warm, a balmy 20 degrees. (that's 68F).
A perfect day for a trip to The Pinery Provincial Park.
 
Walking along the Ausable River Trail, we saw the usual Canada Geese starting to nest.
 
 
Just as I was telling Hubbers there probably wasn't much more to see, I spotted this pair across the river.

 
 Sandhill Cranes

 
Yep, I was pretty excited, another "first" for me.

Just Around The Corner

Spring has been delayed,
but the temperature is warming and the rain is starting.
