hello..The Florida sandhill crane can reach a height of 47.2 inches (120 centimeters) with a wingspan around 78.7 inches (200 centimeters) (Nesbitt 1996). This species is gray with a long neck and legs, and a bald spot of red skin on the top of its head. The sandhill crane is unique in flight as it can be seen flying with its neck stretched out completely.

Life History
The diet of the Florida sandhill crane primarily consists of grain, berries, seeds, insects, worms, mice, small birds, snakes, lizards, and frogs.

Florida sandhill cranes are a non-migratory species that nests in freshwater ponds and marshes. This species is monogamous (breeds with one mate).

Hello, Dale!

I've just had my first great experience in bird watching (and photographing, of course!) during my trip to the region of the Pantanal, in the Center West of Brazil, and I'll be posting some photos here soon. This pair of red headed birds is beautiful and you captured them with very good colors and sharpness! Wonderful composition!
