Sharing some thoughts Autumn is also the time of the departure or of the arrival of various migrating birds. In English, a crane may be a machine, device or tool - or a bird, for instance: http:img.nundafoto.net/-/data/gallery/photos/1/11/2351l-grue-cendree-grus-grus.jpg or https:upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/2b/Whooping_Crane_in_flight_in_Texas.jpg

How nice - I just saw some pictures in the news about the migration of the Common or Eurasian crane - on their migration from North Europe to the south, they stop in our temperate regions at this time of the year, before continuing their flight:

for instance

from

to

(in today's news)

and further south

Although, I did see a very leggy bird down by the pond. I have never seen any cranes in this state.

I must have seen a baby, because it was all brown, and was near as big as the one in the picture. He was near a pond at the school I attend, which is pretty much out in the woods.

Canadian Geese, you don't fool with. We have those too, and they are so aggressive.

Yes, geese can defend themselves quite well - after all they are widely hunted:

@Marianne Yes, geese can defend themselves quite well - after all they are widely hunted:...

Love getting info from you. I am glad that many conservationists are dealing with Canadian Geese by coating their eggs instead of shooting them, although even that gives me a weird feeling.

I have been attacked by many geese and ducks in my time.

I usually deserved it. :)

Lol - that looks like a Canada goose ...

Maybe that you can observe cranes in less urban, natural zones with lakes or ponds:

Have a great afternoon! smile smilie
