Sandhill Crane (Adult Feeding Fledgling)

Antigone canadensis


Series: An adult Sandhill Crane teaching its fledgling how to find food. The fledgling would follow alongside the adult, paying very close attention, to the lesson being taught.


Woodland trail with some open prairie and marshland, next to several small lakes.


Sandhill Cranes forage for grains and invertebrates in prairies, grasslands, and marshes. They do not hunt in open water or hunch their necks the way herons do. Their bugling calls are unique and can be heard from miles away. They can help alert you to this species’ presence, particularly as they pass overhead on migration.

No species ID suggestions
