Creeks and Cranes

Usually our creek is just a trickle, but after all the rain we got dumped on it now looks and sounds quite spectacular. I am always amazed how much water this creek can handle.  We have some beaver ponds in the back, but after all the rains the water level is too high for the dam to handle and is overflowing.

On top of all this meteorological excitement we have some new visitors. Two big sand cranes are stepping high through our fields, close enough to admire them from the house. They even let us listen to the loud trumpeting sounds they produce. 
Big birds making big sounds. I hope they're no early risers...
