Sandhill Cranes – Courtship Dance on a Cranberry Bog

The cranes and herons have returned to southern Wisconsin. Hundreds of sandhill cranes have been spotted near Whitewater, and great blue herons are now building and repairing nests at a rookery near Fort Atkinson. In celebration of their return, and the advent of spring, I am posting a remarkable set of photographs taken by my friend, Georgia Kestol-Bauer. Taken several years ago, these photos capture two sandhill cranes in a courtship dance atop a cranberry bog near Warrens, Wisconsin.
