    In the first and second photos there’s a kind of “movement” in the birds that you’ve caught. To me, it’s very striking. This may be my imagination, but in the first pic they seem to be “moving” up, “taking off”; in the 2nd they seem to be landing. Whatever it is, there is that movement you’ve caught of the birds in their coming or going. Great photos. MCS

      Mary S,
      The flock of sandhills in the photos were taking off. Don’t remember if they were starting to land in the second shot. They made several short flights from the corn field to the pasture then back again. Don’t know the reason. It was to far to the pasture to tell if they were feeding there or not. I guessed they might have picked some grass to add to the the corn they were feeding on. Or possibly insects. Don’t know for sure but there was some reason for this moving back and forth. Thank You…

  2. I don’t know why anyone would want to shoot these birds. They can’t have much meat on them.
    Great shots of them!

      New Hampshire Gardener,
      The knick name for these birds is ” ribeye of the sky “. They eat grain that is supposed to be part of the reason for the good taste. Never ate any myself. Thank You…
