My Sandhill Crane Photography Experience

I headed to Bosque del Apache Wildlife Refuge, which is a premier place for photos of Sandhill Cranes. It was possible to capture photos of them flying into the ponds at the end of the day and running across the water to take off in the morning. Even though they are large, their movements in the air are incredibly smooth.

Facts About Sandhill Cranes

The sandhill crane (Grus canadensis) of the Crane species (family Gruidae) is 35–43 inches long and has a red crown, a bluish or brownish gray body tinged with sandy yellow. It is one of the oldest of all existing bird species. The Sandhill Crane is the most abundant of the world's cranes. Scientists estimate that approximately 80 percent of all migratory Sandhill Cranes in North America use a 75-mile stretch of Nebraska's Platte River during their spring migration.

The Fascinating Flight Of The Sandhill Crane

Photos of Sandhill Cranes were on my list as a bird and wildlife photographer. These are very large birds standing 3 to 4 feet tall sporting a 6 to 7-foot wingspan. You don't have to have the biggest lens for them to fill the frame in your camera!

Although they can be found in numerous states, one of the best places to capture them in action is at the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico, generally in December. Getting the photographs of the Sandhill Cranes as they were taking off from the pond each morning was a blast. They would go one at a time as if each one was getting clearance for takeoff.
