Baby Sandhill Crane

Sunday morning we made a walk at our nearest forest preserve, Rollins Savanna, and saw a pair of Sandhill Cranes and their young foraging through shallow water. We’ve been seeing a lot of cranes around here, but we hadn’t seen a baby crane yet. The two adults were picking out food and carefully giving it to the chick. It was very cute. Here are some pictures and a video we took:

Thanks great pics. Me and my son saw a pair in a wetland in Lakewood Mchenry county illinois
had only a cell phone so no great pics. Helped us identify them however.
