We drove to the Old Town section of Homer to check out the art galleries. I saw this beautiful marsh at the end of the road filled with photographers aiming at something. Of course I went. They were shooting the sand hill cranes that frequent this marsh area and summer here in. These birds are ab out four feet high and the first time I saw one walking up the road at another location I initially thought is was a peacock but without the large tail. Beautiful birds up close and stunning in their natural setting.
