Sandhill Crane

Grus canadensis (Linnaeus, 1758)

Description:

Adults are gray overall; during breeding, their plumage is usually much worn and stained, particularly in the migratory populations, and looks nearly ochre. The average weight of the larger males is 4.57 kg (10.1 lb), while the average weight of females is 4.02 kg (8.9 lb), with a range of 2.7 to 6.7 kg (6.0 to 14.8 lb) across the subspecies.

Notes:

I was able to get close to these two birds. I was wondering if they were hanging around a nest but couldn't locate it.
