    I am not sure if anyone has posted this, but I thought this was a cool thing to share with you all... If it has been posted, please delete this thread. My friend "Dave in LA" on another forum posted this message, please read, and view the show.

    These pics were taken in the Suntree area of Florida ~Viera~ south of Cocoa & Titusville.

    A Sand Hill Crane couple recently had an exciting addition to their family. When they built their nest near the water's edge it immediately drew attention of passers by. Soon there were two eggs sitting on top of the nest and the mother on top of them.

    The really curious passed by the site every morning and would stop their cars to get out and see if there were any new cranes yet. Many brought cameras of all shapes and sizes and would stand near the water for long periods of time hoping to catch a photo of the hatching.

    raymond barlow: Robert Grover, a dentist, didn't actually catch the birth but, he sure did capture some fabulous shots of the Momma, Papa and baby (the second egg never hatched). Then he put together a slide show with music that is just too good to not share it.

    You can click on each picture individually or click on "Start Slideshow" and enjoy some beautiful music with it. So cute! There are pictures at the end of the slideshow with some of the neighborhood people watching the sandhill cranes.
