033 COUNCIL OF CRANES

Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Sandhill Cranes, Platte River Valley, Nebraska. Descending into a council of cranes, a sandhill spreads its wings to land on the bank of the south channel of the Platte. A system of inter-connected sloughs and wetlands along the Platte traverse adjacent wet meadows and native prairies. Intimately tied to groundwater, these side-channels and sloughs provide quiet midday refuges and food sources away from the river.
