Expert bird guide Norm Lewis is your leader for one of North America’s greatest wildlife spectacles—the grand migration of the sandhill cranes. Every March, the cranes hear the call of their nesting grounds to the north after overwintering in the south. They will eventually spread out across North America and beyond, establishing nests and raising young. But first 500,000 cranes pause, feed, and gain strength along the Platte River, near Kearney, Nebraska. This adventure includes viewing the languid "fly-in," as the cranes return at dusk to their river roost, and then at dawn watching as flocks of thousands of cranes lift off the river in a roar of wings and prehistoric calls. Don’t miss this spectacular display! Includes bus transportation from the Museum, meals, and accommodations. Click here for the itinerary and more information.
