A pair of Sandhill cranes visit my yard most days. This is the male and he was drinking from the birdbath when I grabbed my camera and captured him looking at the statue. They are not afraid of people and so the city has banned us from feeding them. I used to buy bags of corn for them but now and then I just give them some stale bread. They seem to do well with bugs and seeds they forage for themselves. I've even seen them capture a small mole. Beautiful creatures. I enjoy their visits.
