In an open field in Roscoe this week were a swoop of Sandhill Cranes. Hundreds of the birds could be seen among the wind turbines of West Texas. Sandhill Cranes breeds from Siberia and Alaska east across Canada to the Hudson Bay and to western Ontario, with isolated populations in the Rocky Mountains, northern prairies, Great Lakes and in Mississippi, Georgia, and Florida. They spend their winters in California, and from Arizona to Florida. They prefer marshes, prairie ponds and marshy tundra. They are also found on prairies and grain fields during migration. They have a slow downstroke and a rapid and jerky upstroke. They fly in a V or a straight line formation.
