Dancing cranes

Just a quick update on the Sandhill Cranes mentioned in my last post. On the way home from work today, the cranes were doing some pair-bonding dance moves. First, the male would bow and leap, flapping his wings and kicking his legs out. Then, the female would do the same. They did some synchronized bows and leaps, too. It was neat to watch. When I passed by their pond on the way to get dinner, they had settled in for the night; I saw them quietly standing side by side in the pond, silhouetted and shadowed by the headlights along the road.
