"In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks." John Muir
Spring in Florida is the time one sees the little Sandhill hatchlings. The Florida Sandhill Crane is far less common than other sandhills with less than 5,000 remaining. Habitat destruction is their main threat. They are a protected species in Florida and killing them carries a high penalty. Which brings to my mind John Muir, American naturalist, author and founder of the Sierra Club.
Sierra Sandhill Crane is a tribute to Mr. Muir, often cited as the father of our National Park System, and his tireless efforts to preserve the American wilderness.
