Sand Hill Crane and Juvenile – Orlando Wetlands Park – June 2015

I love these guys, they are fearless. I was walking along the berm and they shared it with me. Not showing any nervousness, just going about their business. Children stay with their parents for up to 10 months and couples stay together for several years.  The Florida strain of Sand Hills are a threatened species – they have graduated from endangered.
