yes, they're about 3.5 feet tall and make a racket in the mornings, about 7am (but it's nice). This morning there were two on one side of the house, and three others came in, making lots of noise. The three, when they landed, could not see the other two, but when they got to a point where they could see them, they screeched more. Here's a link for a video plus sound: http://magma.nationalgeographic.com/ngm/cranecam/
