Homer, AK (Google, OSM)

Description

There were two family groups of cranes out on the wetlands area in Homer, seen from the nature trail/boardwalk out of the Islands & Ocean Visitor Center (USFWS).

This family group had only 1 chick, and it was being actively fed by one of the parents (I presume this was the male; the female stood watch while the male forayed out for tidbits which he fed the youngster - who sure was eager). The adults displayed some very touching parental behaviors - seemed quite affectionate !
