Sandhill Cranes

I received the following from NebraskaFlyway.com :

The first Sandhill Cranes have arrived!
We are not quite at peak numbers, but that will be occurring within the next week to 10 days. Nearly every species of waterfowl you can think of is arriving in south-central Nebraska as well, making for some spectacular viewing along the Platte River and the Rainwater Basin.  Bald Eagles are plentiful and are keeping the waterfowl on their toes.  Sandhill Crane numbers will continue to build in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
