Sandhill cranes are one of the best known and loved birds in the United States.
They are easy to locate and instantly recognizable, a part of the North American landscape for over 9 million years. One of their keys to survival is a highly developed vocal and physical communication system.
Sandhill cranes have an elegance that draws attention. They group together in great numbers, and mates find each other with an exuberant dance and grace.
