This Incredible Nebraska Spectacle Is Like Nothing Else In The World

Every spring, Nebraska becomes host to some 500,000 winged visitors. These tourists converge on a small swath of land along the Platte River for a few weeks to fatten up and rest before continuing on their long journey. These special visitors are sandhill cranes, and their presence is an exciting part of late winter/early spring in Nebraska.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

Even if you’ve never been much of a bird watcher, everyone should make an exception for the spring sandhill crane migration. This natural event is beyond compare, and it happens every year only in Nebraska.
