In addition to the Sandhill Cranes there was plenty of other wildlife to photograph as we drove around Crex Meadows. More photos from Crex Meadows can be found on my website.
We saw the occasional White-tailed Deer. This one sopped along the road to pose.
Red-tailed Hawks were flying over the Meadows.
There were a lot of Hooded Mergansers around. I photographed this bunch just before they took off into the sunrise.
With the low water levels in some of the ponds it was easy to find Great Blue Herons around.
There were also quite a few American Coots around although no where near the hundreds I saw on an earlier visit.
