    The crane migration stops for several weeks on the Platte River near Kearney, Nebraska. The number of birds is peaking now, hundreds of thousands resting before continuing on a journey that will take some as far as Siberia to nest. Best viewing times are dawn and dusk, as the flock leaves the safety of the river sandbars to spend the day feeding, then returning at dark. These are large birds, and their numbers are simply staggering. The video quality is not terrific, but you will still be awed by the spectacle.

    In the evening, multiple flocks of hundreds of birds each circle the river, gradually spiraling down to roost. In the morning, virtually ALL the birds leave simultaneously, an awesome, breathtaking sight you will never forget.
