The images I got were shot from quite a distance, but thanks to my friend Jody for alerting me to their presence! A group of 10 Sandhill Cranes are staging in Central Saanich and fattening up on a recently ploughed field of corn. Sandhills are not uncommon on the lower mainland or the prairies, but seldom seen on Vancouver Island.
Summer 2023.. I just received notice that my blog has been awarded a distinction of being one of the top 10 photography blogs in Canada.
