Slip slidin' away.

A sandhill crane sliding on the ice at Long Point, Ont, March 19, 2023.
It threw its wings out just like a person throwing their arms out to catch their balance.
Antigone canadensis
The Sandhill Crane’s call is a loud, rolling, trumpeting sound whose unique tone is a product of anatomy: Sandhill Cranes have long tracheas (windpipes) that coil into the sternum and help the sound develop a lower pitch and harmonics that add richness.
