BosqueDelApache Sandhill Crane

To continue my deviation from birding in SE Colo, here is one of the more than 8,000 Greater Sandhill Cranes that are currently at the Bosque Del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico. Boy, I have to admit that my new DSLR Canon xti camera with 70-300 lens (and 1.4 extender)does take much higher quality pics of distant birds and especially under low light than my Panasonic Lumix as this pic demonstrates. Be sure to double click on the pic to enlarge it-the bird's orange eye and the feathers show very nicely. SeEtta
