The cranes that live and nest where I work hatched 2 babies again this year, about a week or so ago. It’s been hard to get emotionally invested in the family after last year’s heartbreaking loss of both chicks (presumably to traffic accidents, though nothing definitive is known). But they are so darn cute, I had to take these photos as the kids were feeding and walking around with their parents. Here’s to hoping they stay safe and grow strong.
