Sandhill Cranes – Pegging The Cute Meter

Is there anything more cute than a baby? Whether it is a human baby, kitten, puppy or a duckling, there is something about babies that makes everyone say “Oh, how cute!” Today’s post is no different. I heard of a nesting pair of Sandhill Cranes near our home and made a few visits over there to get some images of the cute little chicks. This pair of cranes had 2 colts, so I had lots of opportunities to peg the cute meter.

Here are a few of my favorites. I hope you enjoy them. Click an image to view larger.

This one is 3-4 weeks old. They grow up so fast.
