Sandhills Crane cam

I know not everyone here is a bird fan, but thought I'd share with you all anyway. I'll be going out a few times, and will get some good photo practice. Even if you aren't a birder...the sight of these thousnads of cranes doing their dances, and singing their songs... it's just magical. Cheers!

Thanks for the tip on the crane cam. I LOVE the sound of cranes! Now that National Geographics's web cam at Pete's Pond is off, the crane cam will be the next best thing!

They strut through my backyard fairly frequently. Beautiful birds.

William Bartram called the sound "sonorous trumpeting."

Thanks cooncat,

I vow to visit those sandhill cranes some Spring! If it means curtailing an Africa trip to do it, so be it!
