Call of Freedom

I was lucky to watch a pair of Common Cranes in autumn roosting on their migration route south to the hibernation area. The typical call of the birds makes you feel to have a part in their long and dangerous journey but also in their boundless freedom crossing many human borders until they will come back for breeding up north again. Good luck!
