Sandhill Cranes

The sandhill crane (Grus canadensis) adults are grey with a red crown, white cheeks and a long dark pointed bill. They have long dark legs which trail behind in flight and a long neck that is kept straight in flight. Immature birds do not have a red crown; they have reddish brown upperparts and grey underparts. Adult cranes can reach four feet in height and weigh five to eight pounds, with a wing span of up to six feet. Both sexes look alike. (from Wikipedia)
