KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) — It's time for the annual migration of sandhill cranes, and there are three places around the country where you can see them.
From now through about April 8, thousands of the four-foot-tall birds can be seen on Nebraska's Platte River. The Audubon Society's Rowe Sanctuary sponsors a live CraneCam so that even if you can't make it to see the spectacle in person, you can see it online at http://www.rowesanctuary.org. Early morning around sunrise, to late afternoon through dusk, are the best times to see the birds. They forage for food elsewhere during the day but return to the river at night.
