Early Fall Migration – Sandhill Cranes in Saskatchewan

Migration of Sandhill Cranes

Sandhill Cranes start to congregate on the Canadian prairies in early to mid August. Usually by mid-September the number of cranes peak. Twice a day cranes fly from their roosting areas, typically shallow marshes and wetlands, to the croplands to feed, returning to roost several hours later. The call of the Sandhill Crane reminds us that fall is here.
