Photo of the Week
Sandhill Crane at Bodie Island Light
This is a bird I haven't seen before at the Lighthouse. And fairly rare on the OBX I think. I have seen a few wintering at Pungo Lake, well inland from here. He/she ( they look alike) was quite calm as I approached slowly to about 20' away. Too busy looking for worms in the wet ground!
I got a good selection of photos but the high noon light was tough to work with. I tried again later in the day but he was gone.
I hope you enjoy it,
