May 12th - Winnipeg, Manitoba

Just a quick posting early in the morning before we explore the city.

Last night I showed the photo we took of the stork/heron to our resident ornithologist, DeeAnne, and she said it was a Sandhill crane. These birds migrate south in winter to the southern United States. We must have seen the birds on their way back north after the winter.

I hasten to add the photo above of a Sandhill crane was NOT taken by me!

  1. Ahhah....I was right even if I could not identify the species! Where would you be without the amateur ornothologists like Dee Anne and me?
