While along Rte 1A in Rowley a pair of Sandhill Cranes are entertaining the masses with their habit of feeding quite close to the road.
They came close enough to allow for head shots at one point.
Hey... who are you looking at!
The pair performed several dances in the short time I was there. These help to keep a firm pair bond between these beautiful Cranes that mate for life.
A Merlin was perched close by. This shot was taken as it watched a Red-tailed Hawk fly by quite close.
Salisbury Beach State Reservation was fairly quiet when I visited around noon today but this Northern Harrier made up for the lack of bird life.
