Photos | McDonald's, a family restaurant - for sandhill cranes

On my way to the mall to pick up some new running shoes, I saw a daddy, mommy and baby sandhill crane chowing down on the grass outside a McDonald's in Viera. Above is the mother and her little one.


The mother watches the father stroll through the parking lot, likely trying to be a barrier between his family and the hungry people who go to McDonald's.

Mother and chick. The mother is alert because some happy child has just walked out of McDonald's and is screaming at the birds.
Wednesday was the second time I've seen this family. The first time was about a month ago, when the youngster was less than half of this size.

My presence started to ruffle a few feathers, so I left.
