Jamestown, NY – Sandhill Cranes are tall, gray-bodied, crimson-capped birds whose elegance draws attention.
A few years ago, folks started seeing Sandhills at and near the Audubon Community Nature Center. Last year, a pair successfully hatched and raised a young crane nearby.
On Friday, May 5, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. you can join others to learn more about and then go out to look for Sandhill Cranes in the area.
Search for Sandhills will start inside at the Nature Center with a short program about these elusive birds, then carpool using Audubon’s van to nearby places where the cranes have been seen.
Directing the Search will be Audubon Senior Naturalist Jeff Tome, who developed the habit of looking for cranes as he drives and has found them more often than he expected.
Participants are reminded to wear comfortable shoes and bring binoculars or a spotting scope if you have them.
