Sandhill Cranes in Kenai, Alaska

We made a whirlwind trip to Kenai to deliver artwork for the upcoming Celebration of Wildlife 2012 Exhibition that opens June 1 at the Kenai Convention and Visitor Center.  While we were there we managed to watch birds until the sun set, then sat up until 1:30AM visiting with our wonderful hosts Kathy and David Wartinbee.  I photographed these two Sandhill Cranes as they fed in the salt marshes along the coast.  We are still debating the specie of duck that I spotted that has purple coloring over the eye.  I’m forwarding a fuzzy photo of the duck to David for ID.  Great trip, awesome hosts, beautiful drive, breathtaking Alaska scenery.
