Looks like a Sandhill Crane to me.

Hi Dave,

My guess is Sandhill Crane.

Based on:
1. Bald or Shaved Forehead
2. Plumage Color
3. Leg color
4. Bill Color
5. Habitat

I was thinking possibly Sandhill Crane, too. :)

I absolutely concur Sandhill Crane colt.

The bill eliminates any ducks or geese, so we’re left with wading waterbirds. That rusty color is pretty unique to the young Sandhill Crane chicks (colts) we see with their parents in the late spring and summer—though I’ve never seen one that small!

Great photo!

The baby bird is a Sandhill crane.

This is getting a bit more svbejctiue, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of neighbors will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune Social is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
