Every winter thousands of Sandhill Cranes hang out in the shallow waters here. The refuge allows free overnight parking for RVs in a small roundabout area. Perfect! Every morning just before sun rise the cranes take flight filling the air with thousands of birds. Quite the amazing sight but also amazing sound wise as they begin to cackle excitedly as the dawn breaks.
In this video I’ll give you a look at the overnight camping area, the early morning flight of the birds and some other highlights from our short 3 night visit. Also at the end I have a collection of my still images I took during the visit.
We had a good time and met some other cool RVing folks while there. I highly recommend a stop over if you love bird watching and photography. 😉
