Sandhill Crane Migration
By Grit Staff
Across the Midwest during late February through early April, sandhill cranes can be seen migrating north on their return trip to their summer habitat. Locations along the Platte and Republican River areas through central Nebraska are popular destinations for tourists and birdwatchers wanting to witness the great annual migration, where large numbers will make stopovers.
