Now it serves as a simple repository of favorite activities.

Name that critter.

Driving back on M-35 between Gladstone and Gwinn. Saw these guys strolling along the shoulder of the road by the edge of the woods. Had to double back to try and get a closer look. Two adults and three chicks. It looked bigger than a blue heron and - not blue. My Olympus was not in reach so only got lower quality shots with the droid.  I don't recall ever seeing a bird like this up here. Guesses in the comments.

It's a sandhill crane. I'm surprised you haven't seen them before. They're quite common alongsides and in open areas. I heard they're quite tasty.

Sandhill cranes. There's a family that nets at little camp.
