The Sandhill Cranes at Reifel Sanctuary have hatched another chick. It hatched the very morning we were there, unfortunately it's sibling had hatched and died the day before. All looked well during our visit, so hoping for the best.

Our cranes are in their fall plumage now, with this year's addition to the family in tow. He was mirroring his Dad in everything, and was even brave enough to eat out of my hand. What a cutie pie. :cloud:

A trio of suspected Juveniles are staying at the sanctuary. They are thin, small, and have much paler plumage than our resident pair.
