Seeking Sandhill Cranes.

Ah, sandhill cranes. More than 30,000 of these celebrated, 4-foot-tall, slate-gray birds with a bustle of drooping feathers over their rumps and crimson crowns are back in the Sacramento region for fall and winter. In September, they migrate to the Central Valley’s Delta and floodplains from Alaska, Oregon and California’s Sierra valleys for better climate and food supply during the colder months. They’ll stay through February, thrilling people of all ages with a captivating, easygoing outdoor adventure in our region’s backyard.
