Sandhill Crane

This Sandhill Crane and her mate have been a visitors to my yard over the past few years. Recently her mate has been all alone in the backyard. I went in search of the nest and found it in a marsh across the street from my house. I could not believe how big the eggs are. I am thinking we will have some colts in the near future! Taken with a Nikon D7100 with a Nikon 80-400 mm lens.
