No, I haven’t taken a partnership with “Sesame Street.” (Just how DO you get there, anyway?)
I’m referring to two sets of big-bird pictures that came in over the past couple of days.
Let’s start with Jeanette Lang’s photos of sandhill cranes making themselves at home on a quiet country road:
Jeanette found these majestic birds on her commute home from downtown Duluth, south of U.S. 2 between Brule and Iron River, Wis. “Kinda cool,” she writes.
Karl Riggle of Zanesville, Ohio, shared these pictures of rough-legged hawks in the backyard bird bath taken by fellow, uh, Zanesvillian David Bonifant.
Small bath. Big bird.
Also kinda cool.
