Sandhill Cranes

Lake Kissimmee, Florida

Sandhill Cranes

With over half a million birds, the Sandhill Crane is the most plentiful crane alive today. The Florida subspecies (Grus canadensis pratensis) numbers only 5,000, and like the Mississippi and Cuban subspecies, is considered endangered. Interestingly, these are the three subspecies that do not migrate. It takes two and a half years for Sandhill Cranes to reach their adult plumage. Juveniles do not have the red crown and their neck is more tawny (brown).
