Sandhill Cranes in Waukesha County Wisconsin on March 5, 2022

Birding about Waukesha County I came across a couple of Sandhill Cranes off the highway. They must have come in the last day or two. They moved around and seemed to find some food in a few spots where maybe frost was not in the ground. It was nice seeing them and they will probably be looking for a nesting place soon. It was a gloomy day but temps were mild in the 40’s. Images were taken on March 5, 2022.
