    This Sandhill crane is busy reinforcing the grassy tuft upon which its two eggs sit near the Pinedale Field Office in Wyoming. Egg laying usually occurs during April and May when the cranes return from their wintering grounds in the southern U.S. and South America.

    Sandhill cranes share parenting responsibilities, both helping to incubate the eggs and brood and feed the chicks.
