Seeing this sandhill grazing in a meadow near Herbster, Wisconsin, made me wish a crane would visit my garden. I've had everything from hummingbirds to wild turkeys there, but so far never a crane. What a delight it would be to see that lithe, elegant body slipping through the lilies. Cranes are migrating now. And I'm wishing I could see that particular piece of garden art waiting some morning when I go out to water.
