In his job Joe drives around a lot and see's random places he'll remember and drive me out to see whenever we get the chance. On a fitting road called Duck Lane out in the countryside he'd spotted these bird houses on wooden poles in the middle of an allege covered pond - apparently in someone's back yard. How the bird houses stand up is a mystery to me but it was a great sight to see and there were a few birds rustling around in the marsh grasses close by. Further along the same road came another couple of ponds and a careful eye spotted these amazingly coloured birds which we later found out to be wild Sandhill Cranes. Wildlife in America does seem to be a lot tamer or maybe they should be seen as more adventurous?
