Sandhill Crane is in, Scaups are out

This Sandhill Crane came to us from Soldotna earlier this week. It was a very late hatchling and mom and pop and another older sibling headed south leaving this one behind.
I took this photo of these scaups right before I crated them up to release them. They were orphaned back in July.
All of the scaups were sticking together after I released them at West Chester Lagoon. They were really having a blast diving and swimming real fast. Now it's up to Mother Nature.
