this is a sandhill crane. brian posted one of these a while ago and i've been dying to see one ever since. this thing must have stood close to 5 feet tall... it was gigantic. easily the largest bird i've ever seen in the wild. here is another shot, taken just a few moments earlier.

check out this shot.
