Tag Archives: Mating Sandhill Cranes

I’m still looking for Sandhill Cranes around the area. There seem to be more cranes around this year than in past years but they could just be passing through.

We found this crane in a local wildlife area. On an earlier trip the crane was chasing the Canada Goose but they seemed to be coexisting this time.

I stopped to photograph a couple of cranes walking through a wildlife area when they started mating. This was a first for me. I have a photo of a couple of Bald Eagles mating and a couple of Elk mating this was the first time for cranes.

These two were in a small pond so we stopped. We might have been a little close because they took off shortly after we arrived.
