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.
