Sandhill Crane - Making Beautiful Music

Via Flickr:
I was standing right next to this Sandhill as it was grooming its feathers. What was so remarkable beyond being next to this bird, was the sound of the feathers as they were being preened by the bird, it sounded just like satin. If you have ever heard a satin dress or moire fabric rubbed together, it sounded just like that. It was a beautiful sound I will always associate with this grooming Sandhill Crane. Absolutely, one of the most enchanting experiences of my life listening to this Sandhill make music with its feathers. Janet Hug - Taken at Kensington Metropark, Milford, Michigan.
