Sandhill Crane Baby ? Love

Two Sandhill Crane babies and their mom seeking adventure at Halpatioke Regional Park, Stuart, Florida.  The dirt on the juvenile cranes' beaks is an indication that they've been foraging for their own food.  These omnivorous offspring will continue to learn from their parents until they become independent around 9 or 10 months of age.
