These images of the spring sandhill crane migration were taken during two visits, in March 2010 and March 2008, to Audubon's Rowe Sanctuary near Kearney, Nebraska. During both visits stills and videos were shot at two different blinds, one at sunrise and one at sunset. These experiences represent my first time witnessing a significant wildlife migration, and both were stunning events for me. An estimated 200,000 cranes, plus thousands of snow geese and some ducks, were present along a 70-mile stretch of the river. The incredible number of sandhills, the world's most populous crane, stand in contrast to America's other native crane species, the whooping crane, which is the world's most endangered.
