    A Sandhill crane has adopted a gosling here at one of our metro parks. It’s been fun to follow this. The famous albino deer that’s at the park even got in one of the shots. Pretty cool. 18761A4C-CF02-439D-9490-943C230CD563.jpeg 757CBD16-58AF-4F38-A02B-F1E5E55E3922.jpeg BD7A03FA-943C-4D66-A83F-19D8EE479097.jpeg

    That crane is just raising up that gosling until it’s big enough to EAT!

    Those are great pictures. I've never seen a crane foster a gosling. The gosling dancing with the crane is epic!

    The FB page is “birding Michigan”. Pretty cool page to follow. I found out about this on that page as well. I didn’t hear about it anywhere else. BA9A8FC0-26D4-4FDE-B13A-A6BACEF0DAC3.png 219DF3D1-3FFE-4C94-A16F-52FE9E8B1AC3.png
