What's the matter with this sandhill crane?
This sandhill crane behaved oddly after eating birdseed that had fallen on the ground. It looked like he/she is trying to cough up something that might be stuck in his/her throat. But nothing comes up. I've watched sandhill cranes for several years and have never seen one behave like this before. Eventually it stopped coughing and seemed fine. I just really wish I knew what happened. Any ideas?
