Name this bird? (and I'm back)

After two weeks of CITES, the Convention of International Trade of Endangered Species (in Doha, Qatar), followed by a three-day stopover in Cairo and five days of yard work and household chores, I'm getting back into the swing of things.

Work should be interesting -- everything has revolved around CITES for the past six months. We failed miserably, getting absolutely no protections for eight endangered sharks and Atlantic bluefin tuna. It's time to put the experience in the rear view mirror and move on now.

I have plenty of photos from Cairo that will take a while to sort out, of course, but in the interim I thought we could play a round of "Name this bird."

I also have a photo of CJ amidst the cherry blossoms for those interested...

Sorry I missed you in NYC- hope to see you next time! Am pretty sure from the stretched neck, overall look and markings is a crane of some sort, but not sure if common crane, maybe demoiselle? Have only seen sandhills, couple of whoopers and a few demoiselles, so not sure- love you you all-
