Lesser Sandhill Cranes Returning to Roost

These guys (compared to the Great Sandhill Cranes) breed at more northern latitudes such as the arctic, are smaller and the smallest, weighing on average about 6-7 pounds and standing 3-3.5 feet tall.

The Bitter Lake Lesser Sandhills migrate as far as Western Alaska & Siberia.

Kudos to Steve Alvarez and Staff, Jim Montgomery and the Friends of Bitter Lake NWR for a well done educational and experiential outreach ~ Cranes & Cocoa 2017
