This pair were obvious mates. They never strayed far from each other, and vocalized back and forth continuously.
These animals are incredibly beautiful. Subtly browns and tan with a vivid red head. You can’t miss them…they’re really tall.
Until this meeting any photographs I had ever seen of them was from a distance, and typically taking off from open fields.
This group of Cranes were fine with us being nearby, as long as we gave them their space.
