Thank you, Maeve! This video is wonderful, and the photos at their website are also great. I actually was working about a week and a half ago, and looked up from the computer to see a Sandhill Crane fly low over my back yard in South Burlington. A very surreal moment!
Loved this! Thanks again,
Gail Straw South Burlington
