Anni's Bird D'Pot

I am linking to Anni's BIRD D'pot meme which you can find here


I am also sharing more photos of the Gray-crowned Crane.  You can find the other one I posted here.

Mama is still taking care of her chicks....

and they follow closely behind her.

They were very enjoyable to watch.  

even from this aerial view.

The Gray-crowned Crane is deserving of a throne. What a beautiful bird!

Is it a state bird? If not, it should be.
