Sand Hill Cranes

Posted in

This image shows Sandhill Crane color variation. They have mostly grayish feathers. Although the feathers are gray, sometimes they can have a reddish-brown appearance. The reason for the change in color is that the Sandhill Cranes preen themselves by rubbing mud on their feathers. The mud can be brown or red. The red mud comes from iron rich environments. This picture was taken on April 1st.
