Photo of the Week – March 15, 2013

I was reminded of this photo while thinking ahead to this weekend.  A few years ago, I found these pheasant tracks after spending a morning in one of our crane viewing blind along the bank of the Platte River.  This weekend, I get to spend three evenings in that same blind – sharing a world-class birding experience with members of The Nature Conservancy.  Not a bad weekend, really.
