This pair of Sandhill Cranes was WAY off in a field but after Dakota spotted them we discovered they were doing their pair-bonding dance. Background sounds include the car, camera shutter, Red-winged Blackbirds and Eastern Meadowlarks.

That’s a nice video! Bird dances are always a delight!
Nice video….thatÂ´s one bird ill never see down here…
You should do another version of this dubbed with Kool & the Gang music or something as a laugh. 😉
Great video! Glad to see there are sooooo many birding enthusiasts around.
Good thing I’m not a Sandhill Crane as my dancing skills suck. Very cool video, I like the Kool and the gang idea or maybe play that funky music….
Melissa – we hardly ever see them dance so this was a special treat
Daniel – we can trade a few cranes for a quetzal 🙂
Lana – ha ha!!! We wish we had some better video editing skills
Birdy – thanks; the internet is a great place to find lots of birders!
Owlman – perhaps with the aid of wings any of us could dance… we’ll have to see about adding music!
