  1. Love the sequence of photos. It’s a treat to have sandhills flying so low. Where we are we normally only see (and hear) them at altitude when migrating. No nearby stopover sites that I’m aware of.

  2. Gorgeous sunrise, cranes and sunset. You have the most remarkable colors in the sky. I can even see the separation of feathers on the tips of cranes’ wings, amazing photo, Tim!

  3. Love that cloud streaky sky at sunrise. I have to say we’ve had some nice sunrise and morning skies after the wildfire smoke cleared out, here in the west. The pteros never disappoint. 🙂

  4. Whoa! These are some special photos, Tim!
    As I look out at the drab grey of my skies, I feel fortunate to know your skies! Thank you!

  5. Wow, Tim, every one of these images is masterful. Cranes (probably sandhills?) are such magnificent birds, we’re so lucky to have them here in the U.S. And then these spectacular open-sky scenes with thesun rising and setting, and the cottonwoods. That first photo knocked my socks off.

    • Hi Jet. They are Sandhill Cranes. Thousands of them hang out along the Rio Grande during the winter. We get to see them daily from October through February.
