The Cranes are Back

We have a pretty little lake behind our house in Florida.
Not only is it a good Bass lake but the birds love it as well.
Every year we have a family of cranes that come and frequent our bird feeder. Last year they literally tore it up.
I have named them Lillith and Frazier.
Like most of us we build our homes around the conviences .
They chose to build thiers very close to our bird feeder.
Smart birds don't you think.


Today we had some new hungry little guests.
What do you think we should name them?
Aren't they adorable?

Ooh So DarliNg! Let's see...what could you name them? How about Sam and Rebekah? Or Woody and Coach. I like Woody and Coach. Or Toodles and Twaddles. The possibilities are endless.

How are you doing my sweet friend? I'm still praying for you and know that God holds you in His hands.

Hi Becky,
I think the cranes know they are at good bed and breakfast....if they spread the word I think you might be in trouble.....as far as names....I think maybe Scarlett and Rhett would be nice good old fashion names for good old fashion cranes...hehe....
Love and Hugs,
Mo :-)

Becky, Our Sand Hill Cranes are back too. Last year they had a baby, and it was so enjoyable to watch that little guy grow up. My husband and I love our wildlife that surrounds our home. I know you have it made with your surroundings!

Happee Friday, Becky!
I love the cranes!! We have a conservation area at the back of our neighborhood and we always have them around. I love seeing them fly, and listening to the sound they make!

Hope all is well with you, and that you have a great weekend!

Blessings to you and yours,
Becky

I smiled as soon as you said they were back. That is so cool. Maybe there will be babies.
