Douglas Bell and I were astounded in late 2006 when what to our wondering eyes did appear? It seemed to be reindeer flying in the sky above our town. But no... these were not your normal flying reindeer. They appeared to be made of colorful paper and they had wings... yes, they were CRANEDEER. Flying Cranedeer. Here they are hovering over a friends house.
After a while a few of them landed nearby. To our surprise, one had a shiny red nose... we called him Crudolph!
By morning, they were about to leave but we caught this final picture just after sunrise...
Cranedeer are very noisy. Here is what they sound like.
