If you’re looking for something new to do, visit Nebraska through mid-April and you’ll be in the only place in the world where you can see an annual migration of such cranes in one place. This one of the “Top Three Places to Visit in Nebraska”, and we’re in good company. “I’ve had National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore say this is in the top five places he’s ever been,” says Bill Taddicken, of the Rowe Sanctuary. “Jane Goodall comes here annually. She has a trip this year where people can join her.”

“The Japanese believe cranes are a symbol of long life and since they mate for life they are a symbol for the wedding ceremony. The Russians believe the cranes took the souls of dead soldiers to heaven,” he says. More than the scene, it’s the collective loud sound they make that is so noticeable. “The crane’s voice can be heard for over a mile. It’s such an ancient sound I can’t say it sounds scary, these cranes have been here for 10 million years,”

Me? It is an opportunity to shoot thousands and thousands of photos to come home later, and paint….  And as always, if you click on the photos, you’ll be taken to the web site where you may invest in prints, postcards and even United States Postage!

Thanks for listening!
