Two videos of some nice bird sightings at Carlos Avery: Sandhill Cranes and Great Blue Heron

This Great Blue Heron was slightly tamer than some others we had spotted, but that flew off as soon as we stopped. Got a great look at him/her with the camera. There are some other neat videos people have taken of Great Blue Herons hunting on YouTube that I came across too, if you are interested.

Some footage my mother took showing Sandhill Cranes in greater detail than the flight video I posted before. The Cranes seem more wary than the Heron was. Generally, they weren’t both pecking at the ground at the same time, and when they did, it wasn’t for long. You can see that there is oftentimes one scanning the surroundings, and they periodically pause to raise their heads up and look around.
