  • Still above ground, but very busy. Hope to have more input shortly…

  • Rain or shine, Cranes don’t care. A few minutes ago, just before mass takeoff for evening. Our man, Trump, will be at the fairgrounds shortly so imagine they’ll go to Motel6…

  • A smile from youngest grand-daughter, “Briley”, will surely brighten your day…

  • Just another HOT one, mid-afternoon in Crane-ville, July 11th.

  • Been really too busy of late to be very active on any social-media, but do on occasion, and thanks for the invite.

  • Find out why they want to keep this story buried.
    The answer can change the world.
    Erasing the Liberty

  • Our Lilies arrived right on schedule today, June 1, 2018…

  • In case you missed this one…

  • Their parents brought them here for the first time about a week ago and they have been returning each day since. These “twin” Cranes I would guess are about six months old and about 2/3rds of their parents size, but they seem quite “at home” here now. Took this image about an hour ago, about 6:30 p.m….

  • Just felt like posting this pix of four of my grand-kids together on Memorial Day. They are worth fighting for. I’m no ‘hero’, but I did serve long enough to retire from the Navy and Air Force having had tours in both Korea (1951) and Viet Nam (1965-6)and other ‘exotic’ locations around the world. I survived. Many didn’t.

  • For the first time in many years, I saw NO Cranes yesterday…even “Limpy”…who usually arrives first about 0700, and usually with her mate, but not yesterday, which was quite stormy. However, to my surprise Limpy DID appear this morning, just a few minutes ago, alone, and she had come right up to my rear door and I saw her when I was on-the-air, as I usually am every morning at this hour. I went out to greet her and noticed her leg-wound appearing worse again, where she had been doing better. She was also limping badly and the injured area appears like it was torn open, whereas it had healed over. Oddly, she stayed only a few minutes and then suddenly took off, flying away. So the mystery continues…

  • Gee, somehow the copy got separated from the image. Here is Limpy’s mate, this yesterday…

  • Briley, youngest granddaughter, image taken by her mother, Sonja, recently.

  • “Limpy” is still limping, but improving slowly. Left leg injury quite visible here, but doesn’t seem to slow her down much. Twelve Cranes have arrived so far this morning, and perhaps about 15 Ibis.

  • “Limpy”, in foreground, with mate, a few minutes ago, while still limping IS getting stronger every day and injury is less noticable. No sightings in several days so happy to see them again visiting Crane-ville…and rehab center…

  • Crane with left-leg wound on left, with mate, just a few minutes ago. All the others have left for the evening about half-hour ago but these two are still here and sun is getting low, so they will be gone shortly…until morn. They dig in the ground for fresh-live critters, especially “moles” which appear to be like pizza to them. Note the raised area on lower left leg where leg was injured, somehow, but they are ‘tough birds’…mostly. Cranes are about 300 feet distant. 1924 hours.

  • Youngest granddaughter, Briley Bo, on her 4th birthday, March 5th…

  • This is time of year when the oaks shed their leaves and are immediately replaced with new ones. All is calm in Crane-ville.
