Sandhill Cranes near North Platte
The Sandhill Cranes have returned to Nebraska's Platte River Valley on their way north to breed and nest. You'll find thousands of these magnificent birds in the river valley, meadows and fallow farm fields surrounding North Platte. Find more information on area birding opportunities HERE.
Even More Cranes
Though they spend six weeks in the valley, it always seems like our Sandhill Crane visitors are gone too quickly. You'll never get enough of them while they're here.
