Eurasian Crane

It's the time of the year to see thousands (well in this case hundreds) of migrating Cranes while they rest before they continue their way to north Scandinavia where they will build a nest and raise their offspring. 

I took following photos just half an hour south of here where they are feeding and resting, and they do so every year between begin of March and end of April. 
It's quite spectacular to watch, even from a distance. 
They parade and dance for each other AND they make lots of noise too.


  1. Great photos of the Cranes. Must be awsome seeing so many at one time!...debbie

  2. Lovely sight.... Much like our Canada geese migration here in Colorado.

  3. Wow, i'd love to see that, there are so many. Great photos!
