Sandhill cranes visit golf clubhouse
Sandhill cranes peered inside the clubhouse at Country Meadows Golf Course at lunchtime last Friday. Photographer Trudy Morse said the birds were persistent, tapping on the restaurant window and even trying their luck at the door handle with their beaks. Eventually the group headed down the cart path toward the first tee.
Small flocks of migrating sandhill cranes—easily identified by their red patch of unfeathered skin on their forehead—stop for brief visits in the Fraser River delta over winter, while some are year-round residents.
