Sandhill Crane Migration - November 2020 - Northern Illinois

I was out for a walk over the weekend when I heard a bugle-like noise and looked up to see a row of Sandhill cranes flying south high above the Western Suburbs of Chicago.

Here's a video that I took of them - that if you turn your volume WAAAAY up - you can hear what they sound like:


The DuPage County Forest Preserve District has this post up from one year ago that talks about these birds and their migration patterns.  They mention that there's a place in Indiana that sees thousands of these guys every year.  On the Jasper-Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area DNR site, they have a count.  As of this past week, they had more than more than 16K Sandhill Cranes there on site.  Woah.
