Sandhill Crane. We ventured down to the Grand Island, Neb. area earlier this week to see one of the great events that nature has to offer. More than 200,000 Sandhill Cranes were packed into an area less than 40 mile long, and at night less than 1 mile wide. The cranes spend their days feeding in the fields and their nights on the Platte River. The sights and sounds of thousands of Sandhill Cranes returning to the Platte, and leaving the river in the Morning, are well worth the trip. We have posted some of our pictures on this blog-hope you enjoy them. I have not been able to post video on this blog, but have posted a short video of the Sandhill Crane sounds on my facebook site.
