Announcing New Members of the Arbor Lakes Community

Congratulations to the proud Sandhill Crane parents on their two babies recently born here along Lake Tsala Apopka. We welcome you little babies, we’re so glad you’re here. You’ve brought a whole new level of cute in the world.

In case you think it’s odd these baby cranes were born so late in the season, chances are mom and dad’s first attempt to nest failed for some reason. Probably predators ate the eggs or even worse the babies. It is not unusual for birds to attempt a second brood, but they must do it before it is too late in the season.

Let’s hope these two little ones survive until adulthood! We wish you well!
