Sand Hill Crane Migration

My first day with friends experiencing the Sand hill crane migration in Nebraska.  Amazing, and nothing I shot can do it justice.  We had a morning tour from a bird blind, which means we were there well before sunup, we remained very silent so not to cause the birds any concern, and then we waited for sunrise and for the birds to fly off to feed.  There are approximately 300,000 cranes here this year!  And there are also a large number of snow geese passing through. The sights and sounds are something I’ll never forget.

    • They in general are on the area until early April. So you should be able to see them. They roost at night, it’s a long process. They lift off in the mornings, it’s a long process. And during the day they are in the fields eating.
