    On the lighter side Sand hill cranes

    Sand hill Cranes , they are back . They have occupied the farm in huge numbers. Season is changing for the good.

    While not common anymore they were once considered a food source. I have been told by those in the know they are pretty good.

    I think the meat of the Sand Hill Crane is called "The Ribeye of The Sky"?

    My old game warden pal loved to hunt and eat those things. Bound to be good grazings.

    Here in Georgia they are protected. But I understand that in some of the Midwestern states the cranes are so numerous that they often destroy entire crops,thus the shooting of large numbers of birds.

    Hey.. those are my birds.. we have a huge farm in back of my property and the sand hill cranes are there by the thousands. Incredible birds and one of my favorites. So they headed back north on the migration but I look forward to seeing and hearing the every year.

    On the taste side.. haven’t had the opportunity although the step-son was working on it...
