Whooping Cranes

My annual trek to see the Whooping Cranes (Grus americana) at Muskiki Lake, SK.   These are part of the wild flock that breeds in Wood Buffalo NP on the Alberta/NWT border, passes through Saskatchewan on their route to spend the winter at Aransas NWR in Texas.

There were 12 adults and 2 colts that day.  

Er, my video skills are limited....so this thing is a little jumpy at the start and end.
