Thank you Birdie -- at least they show what's going on.

What was the temp when you shot them? They often tuck their feet in when it's very cold after leaving the crane pools.

Very nice shots which were much appreciated even though I am not a crane nerd.

Hi Bryan, it was probably around 40F at the time. I had a hat and gloves on, but at least the cranes didn't have to break ice off their tootsies to fly off to breakfast.

Eric, you've shown some great behavioral stuff from Africa -- as Jim W. said above, being there and seeing what's going on is a big part of what we (try to) do.

Well spotted and captured Mark.
Wonder if it is related to trying to minimize the heat loss or possibly for better aerodynamics.

Nice! Thanks for sharing these. I appreciate the temperature correlation info in the comments. I only see cranes in the Southern California desert, where low temps are rare and I've never seen tucked-in feet....
