This is the Sandhill Crane. I’ve been trying to capture this beautiful bird for sometime now without any luck.
So finally while visiting British Columbia I got a couple of opportunities to see this bird. It was at a bird sanctuary and was very relax to the point where it would eat out of your hand. I was also surprise to see red winged black birds and pigeons eating from the hand. I thought only chickadees did that.
These birds also fly in big flocks like the Canada Geese in the v formation.
God is such a Master Creator. Each time I look at the beautiful things of nature it makes me think about Him. Look at this bird for example, it has a little dab of red on its head, the eye looks orange. It has graceful long legs and a little bit of brown on the wings.
It’s beautifully and distinctively made and cannot be mistaken with any other bird, just as unique as you and I are made.
George C Riefel bird sanctuary is one of the most beautiful bird sanctuaries I’ve ever visited. It appeared that “most” of the birds were living in harmony, or perhaps they were too weary, and was just resting before moving on to the next stop as they migrate. There was a hawk or falcon that kept making the ducks take flight, as it sought out the next meal.

One day soon we will all live in harmony.
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brethren to dwell together in unity! Psalm 133: 1
