Attack of the Cranes

This morning I was awakened not by the sound of a rooster crowing, but to the sounds of cranes. We are being overtaken by them. These pictures were made in the field by the house. As you can see, Squirrel was looking out of the bedroom window at them. There are thousands of them and unfortunately for Joel they are protected and he can't shoot them. You can hunt them in other states and they are known as "ribeye in the sky" and so Joel would love to be able to shoot one and try it out, but he can't! As to taunt him, they have to fly right over the house and land in our yard! At least it is pretty cool to look at!
