Each year the same pair of cranes arrives in early Spring to nest, have “colts” and enjoy the summer with the naturist guests here at Nuance B&B. Yesterday, I received a visitor in the form of the male crane who stopped by to knock on the door and let me know he and his mate were here. (She is sitting on the nest). Very courteous and well-mannered these cranes….
After knocking the crane waits briefly for a response then departs.
