Sandhill Cranes with colt feeding in the South Kettle Moraine in Waukesha County on August 26, 2015

Doing some birding out in the South Kettle Moraine today I came across this family of Sandhill Cranes. I enjoyed the show of two adults and one colt that is almost adult size now. Soon they will congregate in large numbers at staging areas and then migrate to wintering areas in the southern US and Mexico. Images were taken on August 26, 2015.
