On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!

    The beautiful photo above is a photo of 5 sandhill cranes. You can tell because they are silver/gray and their bustles are gray as well. Whooping cranes are pure and completely white except for the red crown and black wing tips. Their bustles are pure white and you only see the black on their wing tips while in flight. Althought these are sandhill cranes, it’s still a beautiful photo.

      Thanks for you comment, Pam. We I posted this photo I had been online looking at several sites that showed whooping crane photos and they sure looked like my birds. Jim

    Sometimes, it’s difficult to tell them apart from afar and if the light is just right. Another give a way is that whoopers are less likely to gather in groups unless migration. Mainly in pairs. I’m not sure where you are located, but if in the west, some sandhills migrate from S to N along the western flyway. Whoopers are never seen in the west. They migrate from TX to the Arctic Circle along the central flyway, Nebraska, N and S Dakota. The eastern population migrate from Wisconsin to Florida. Check out whoopingcrane.com and operationmigration.org. Both are wonderful organizations and have tons of info and photos. 🙂
