2020—Sandhill Crane Migration

A couple of years ago we were in Nebraska in April when thousands of Sandhill Cranes flew in to roost on the Platte River one evening as the sun set. It was quite a spectacular scene as the sun, partially obscured by clouds, silhouetted thousands of cranes in the sky. Each spring, the majority of the world’s Sandhill Crane population rests and refuels on the Platte River as they migrate north. It is an awesome sight. If it weren’t for the current situation in the world, I would be leaving for Nebraska in a few days in the hopes of witnessing something similar. So, instead, I am making a virtual visit there and remembering and sharing some of the incredible sights I have seen there. Nikon D5, Nikkor 300mm PF, Nikon TC-14 Eii.
