Whooping Cranes Flying With Sandhill Cranes At Lake Woodruff NWR

On our trip years ago to the Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge in DeLand Florida we were surprised to see a few Whooping Cranes flying and forging with the Sandhill Cranes. It was fun to see them interacting with the Sandhill Cranes. They were mostly far out in the fields but I managed to get a few images with them flying together in a flock. Image taken with a Canon 1D mk III with a Sigma 300-800mm lens @ 800mm with a Canon 1D mkIII.

  1. Ah, my favorite bird! They stick out a lot more on the ground as they tower over the other sandhills. Always have a huge smile when I see the Whooper conservation numbers going up.
