The Sandhill Crane Babies have arrived! There are two and they are so cute and fuzzy. The Crane Cam live feed is up but right now she’s sitting on the babies. Here is a link to a recording from about an hour ago where you can really see the babies. Yay, babies! It’s time for diapers, binkies, bottles and playpens! What should we name them?
Some more interesting Sandhill Crane Facts:
- The babies can walk on the day they are born
- Sandhill Cranes mate for life and migrate together
- Sandhill Crane females and males look almost identical. The male is slightly larger
- One way to tell them apart is that the male calls once and the female responds twice
