Going to see the sandhill cranes gather at the Jasper-Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area is a great fall field trip!
Here are some videos taken at Jasper-Pulaski. Scroll down for a video taken of a whooping crane flying with the sandhill cranes last Saturday.
They counted 15,ooo cranes at Jasper-Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area last week. High numbers of cranes will continue through the beginning of December
Cranes fly in to viewing platform to socialize after feeding in the surrounding fields all day
It is hunting season so a number of deer hang out in the park where they are safe
This past Saturday a whooping crane was among the sandhill cranes
Something scared the cranes and they all flew into the air
Another Hyde Parker shot this great video with the whooping crane in it!
Here is the website with information about the sandhill crane migration site which is about 1.5 hour drive from Hyde Park: 5822 Fish and Wildlife Lane Medaryville, IN During the day you can sometimes see cranes feeding and sometimes dancing by turning right from the viewing platform parking lot and driving slowly looking for cranes in the fields.
