Sandhill cranes on the move

First you hear them…

Then after you peer up into the sky hopefully you’ll be able to spot them, usually way up there, almost out of sight. This large “V” formation did not take long to spot. During migration Sandhill cranes usually fly around 5000 feet. They have been known to reach 13,000 feet when migrating over mountains.
