Media notes

Crane notices me and lets me know it's time to leave.

Observation details

While sitting quietly near the RCMP graves scanning the aluvial fan, an adult Sandhill Crane walked past feeding, and didn't notice me. This went on for awhile until it did notice me and then went into full distraction display indicating a baby nearby, and then showed me the way out. So I quickly left to give it space.
