|"Day 37. The Cranes still do not suspect that I am a Heron. The plan is working. |
I shall continue to blend in with their herd."
While birding at Merced National Wildlife Refuge, I came upon this rather amusing scene. Well, amusing if you're a birder, I suppose...
No great scientific insights here (other than to say that these two species, the Great Blue Heron and Sandhill Crane, can clearly co-exist quite peaceably). Just a funny photo!
Oh, but as a side note, flocks of Sandhill Cranes really are called herds. And the young are known as colts. There are your facts for the day! (I couldn't help myself.)
