Big, noisy and easily identified, sandhill cranes create a substantial amount of interest every winter when they can be seen in the fields south of Sacramento.Their large size and conspicuous behavior also makes them an excellent species to observe when exploring the ways birds communicate with one another. Join crane biologist, Paul Tebbel, for a presentation about our sandhill cranes which spend the winter in the delta. In addition to discovering facts about crane migration and nesting, you’ll learn to recognize juveniles, tell subspecies apart, distinguish between dancing and aggression and many other details that will help you better understand and appreciate the behavior of sandhill cranes and many other birds. You’ll also receive instructions on how to make your own trip down to see the cranes (including a map of where to see them)!
