Sandhill Crane

Thanks to for these Sandhill Crane fun facts

Sandhill crane offspring can be ready to leave the nest and even start swimming just eight hours after they hatch.

Although the chicks are independently mobile, they will stay with their parents up to 10 months after being born.

The oldest known sandhill crane fossil was found in the Macasphalt Shell Pit in Florida and is estimated to be 2.5 million years old.

This is a great image. The choice of a b&w rendering was a good one, and you have carried it out very well.
