Sandhill Crane

What bird can lift the most?

A crane.

Interesting Fact:  The Sandhill Crane’s call is a loud, rolling, trumpeting sound whose unique tone is a product of anatomy: Sandhill Cranes have long tracheas (windpipes) that coil into the sternum and help the sound develop a lower pitch and harmonics that add richness.

  1. They are in my neighborhood daily these days. Hoping a pair will nest on my little lake in the backyard again this year. You hear them before you see them. Lovely birds.

    • You are so lucky I wish they were in my neighborhood, I had to travel almost across the country to get this photo. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂

  2. To me it is always a treat to hear them during migration. You hear the flock and sometimes they are so high you have to search the sky to find them!
