Sure Signs of Spring?

Two separate flocks of Sandhill Cranes can be seen above this Piñon Pine tree. For a few weeks ever spring, Sandhill flocks fly north along the Rio Grande Flyway and south in the fall.. These three pictures were of taken within 20 minutes of three different flocks. About 10,000 cranes winter at Bosque del Apache in New Mexico before flying north to breeding grounds.
