Our kids gave us this Michael Forsberg photo. A sandhill crane appears to leap for joy as it performs a courtship dance on a secluded wet meadow in the Platte River valley of south central Nebraska.

Sandhill Cranes. My son and I saw a flock of these migrate south in the fall over the farm. Their trilling was beautiful!

The Whooping Crane got its name from the booming call it makes when angry or disturbed. Some say it makes a bugle-like trumpeting sound.
