One Of Nebraska’s Most Incredible Wildlife Spectacles Takes Place In This Unassuming Small Town
The annual sandhill crane migration is one of the most incredible natural experiences one can have in Nebraska. It’s not just beautiful to look at; the sounds of the cranes calling to one another and the whoosh of their wings are unlike anything else. There are numerous places to experience the migration along the Platte River, but one spot offers the ultimate migration vantage point.
