I've loved Eric Taylor's "Whooping Crane" since I first heard Lyle Lovett's version on his Natural Forces album. Lyle and his band do a bang-up live version too, of course.
I'm not sure if I enjoy Eric Taylor's version, but I have to admit that Lyle's perfect interpretations of songs often ruin the original versions for me.
I tried to perform a little version of it a couple years ago. There are much better interpretations out there, however.
