Some people are starting to wonder where are the Sandhill Cranes. Greg Wagner is spokesman for Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says they are on the way. The rough winter even has the birds a bit confused and their migration has been delayed due to the weather.
Several flocks have arrived along the central Platte valley between Grand Island and Kearney but their migration peak will be after St. Patrick’s Day this year. Wagner says close to a half-million Sandhill Cranes will stop in Nebraska on their northward journey to Canada to their breeding grounds.
Thousands of people from around the world attend the migration of the cranes.
