Sandhill Cranes


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Join researchers trying to find out more about the apprehensive Sandhill Crane which spend part of their winter near Portland’s Columbia River wetlands. No one knows for sure where this group of Sandhills comes from - maybe Alaska or perhaps as far away as Siberia. Researchers hope to attach GPS tracking devices to a few to find out exactly where their breeding ground is.
