There are fewer cranes as they are starting to head north.
Daddy Owl is not perching for long at dusk. He is flying off in search of food for Mama Owl.
The pTerodactyl looking beautifully blue-gray in the twilight.
Are you there in the darkness Mama Owl?

Always enjoy sandhill pictures – keep an eye out for whoopers hanging with their flocks. Can’t wait for the owlets!
You take some amazing shots.
I recently purchased a Canon M50 Mark2. Still trying to learn how to use it.
Hopefully, one day I can take photos as good as yours.
Thanks, Drew. You will have fun with that camera.
I hope so
You’ve shared some beautiful images here. Of course, I’m a huge fan of sandhill cranes, but you can’t go wrong with a GBH.
Wonderful pictures, Timothy. I especially love the pterodactyl at dusk!
That one was a long shot. It didn’t see me doing that photo. Thanks, Dale.
It’s a beauty because of it.
A bird in the bush?
But nothing compared to your birds on the Bosque. (Hope that’s the right word)
Ha ha ha! So very true, Thanks, Inchcock.
Love the pterodactyls. We only see the Sandhill cranes at altitude.
Attitude at altitude. I’m sure they let you know they are passing over. Thanks, Maj & Sher.
Beautiful photos of the bosque residents, Tim! I look forward to seeing the owlets.
Beautiful views, my friend and I bet all your feathered friends are also enjoying the dusk views too!
I think they do. Thanks, Marina.
That first phototis like a painting. They are amazing.
These images are stunning.
The 2 pTero photos at dusk & twilight are outstanding. Do the cranes disappear by summer?
The cranes will be all gone in a few weeks. The PTers hang around all year. I saw three pTers the other night. Not a common sight. Thanks, Mary Jo.
You have the best friends and neighbours! Fabulous captures.
Thanks, Rebecca. Yes we have a lot of fun critters for neighbors. Although the last of the cranes will be flying north soon.
Send them my way, Tim!!!!
The first image of the cranes, that is like an Audubon plate. And, the pTero catching the last of the light (#2), that is a nice, nice natureshot.
Great pictures! Those birds are beautiful!
Gorgeous bird shots, Tim. It’s so cute the way Mama Owl just sits in that hole on the eggs.
Eggs in hole! How long now?
We should start seeing owlets in April. Thanks, Resa.
Wonderful photos Tim …!
