We have a family of Sandhill Cranes in our back yard! It's a momma, daddy and two babies. The kids and I have been watching the babies get bigger everyday. They come right to our back door, sometimes peck at our windows and they sound like velociraptors.
We also have other water fowl that like to stand on the bank of the lake.
And yesterday we discovered a bald eagle!
We do get an occasional alligator in the lake and there are plenty of turtles, as well as snake birds, ducks, ect.. But these are are favorites. My 6yo has named the entire sandhill crane family -Cala, Lala, Tulla and Tallulah. It's definitely an adventure to look out my back windows and see what new life is out there and even more fun getting the kids excited about it.
What about you? What's in your back yard?
