My backyard is all fowled up this morning. The duck family is out for a cruise.
And the Anhinga is drying it's wings on my "low" perch.
And finally the Sandhill crane's "Colts", yes that's correct, are out of the nest for the first time since hatching. It takes a month for them to incubate, that's a long for the parents to alternate sitting on the nest.

Looks like you are really going to the birds Frank! I love the Sandhill cranes. They have NO fear of humans. At my Step-Mom's retirement village they usually show up in Jan. and hang there until early March. When I would walk her dog along the lake one or two would come up and walk with us for a couple hundred yards or so. Her dog is fairly small so 4 foot tall birds kinda freaked her out and she would glue herself to me until they left.
Monday night I drove out to the Anza-Borrego desert for an overnight trip to see the wildflowers. All the rain we've had this winter has produced a bumper crop of desert flowers. I also found an adorable little horned lizard, aka "horny toad".
