That is so cool, Greg. Keep us updated on your boarders.

This is so interesting. Do you ever see the young one that has been kicked out of the family group again? If not, I wonder if the fly off in search of a mate?

The paired adult birds allowed last year’s young one to hang around for ~2 weeks after they migrated back together this Spring. But, once the adults were on the nest, that was it for Junior; we haven’t seen him since. You’re probably wondering correctly in that he’s out playing the field in search of his soulmate.

No.

According to the AI website ChatGPT:
"Sandhill Cranes typically reach sexual maturity at around two to seven years of age, with most individuals reaching maturity around two to three years old. However, they may not breed until they are older, usually when they are three to seven years old. Breeding readiness can also be influenced by factors such as habitat quality and population density."

In just the past 13 days you can see the baby Sandhills are growing and have been well taken care of by their parents. Worms, night crawlers, grubs, baby grass snakes and a little whole kernal corn have been on the menu.

There’s been a steady rain for most of the day, the birds are drenched, but the show goes on . . .
