Sandhill Cranes - Whitewater Draw - Southeast, AZ

Sandhill Cranes seen February 13, 2010 at the Whitewater Draw in Southeastern Arizona.

There were plenty of birds besides the Sandhill cranes to see...

including this Green-winged Teal.

After the sun set, and there was still just enough light to see, thousands of cranes flew in from the nearby fields looking much like this. (Video from Southeastern Arizona Bird Observatory)
