Sandhill Crane Distraction

This Sandhill crane is not doing some elaborate dance for my camera – its a distraction. Somewhere in this cornfield there is a baby sandhill crane (picture of fluffy baby crane to come in a future post – I promise) that I am neglecting to photograph. Parent no. 2 is off behind me somewhere calling the baby to it. Very clever. This tactic apparently works on humans as well as potential predators.
