    One of these guys walked up to my truck this morning at the McDonald's drive through and pecked at a blemish in my window tint.

    I went back and tried to find them 8 hours later and found these two.

    I really hope this couple are different birds, cause the pair this morning had a baby with them about a foot tall and it wasn't around later. :(

    I really need to get me one of those $2000 lenses!

    Very cool, how tall are these? AND aren't your windows tinted on the inside?

    I'm 6' 5" and I swear we had one hanging around my college campus that could walk up and look me in the eye.

    He was a really big one though, they normally go about 4.5 to 5' with the females being smaller.

    Windows ARE tinted on the inside.

    After a solid four days of rain last hurricane season, the humidity got to my windows and caused them to bubble in a few places.

    I guess one of the bubbles looked like a bug to him!

    I was at my buddies house in Tampa last weekend.

    Here's what he has walking around his yard.

    I think there are 3 of them.

    That's all they do is walk around looking cool!

    Those are Sandhill Cranes, usually between 2.5' and 4' tall.

    Yeah, I suppose they get much bigger down there.

    Actually animals are larger the further north they live- take deer for instance.
    Pretty sandhill. I love their flight songs, but their call in the fields are like a nuclear alarm

    I love all their sounds, down there in Florida.

    I miss them, more than anything else in that State. Except maybe the Whooping Cranes at Woodruff in Volusia County.
