Greater Sandhill Crane at Malheur Refuge

A greater sandhill crane feeds in the wetlands at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. More than 200 pairs of sandhills nest on the refuge each year. They begin arriving in Feburary/March and are reclusive when they begin nesting. But they can be seen in their nesting territories from late June until the crane colts fledge in September.
