HOOPER -- Sandhill cranes are in Northern Utah in good numbers right now, and opportunities to see and hear the giant birds abound -- but they won't be around too much longer.
The sandhill, the most common of all cranes, is most easily found in Utah during spring, when the birds are going through mating rituals. Migratory subspecies of sandhill cranes breed in the Northern U.S., Canada, Alaska, and Siberia. Each winter they undertake long southern journeys to wintering grounds in Florida, Texas, Utah, Mexico, and California.
