Migration of Cranes Attracts Large Number of Tourists in Midwest During Springs
Thousands of sandhill cranes, geese and ducks have started migrating from wintering grounds in New Mexico, Texas and northern Mexico to Canada, Alaska, Siberia and many hot spots across Nebraska for the summer. These birds are said to take around 7,000-mile journey every year.
Curtis Wolf, site manager of the Kansas Wetlands Education Center at Cheyenne Bottoms Wildlife Area, was quoted as saying, "The weather has something to do with it I think that is a good chance and a big part of why they are pushed". He adds that mild winter combined with drought conditions might be affecting this migration from Texas to the Midwest.
Sandhill Cranes are one of the oldest bird species alive and are said to be stopped along a 40 to 80 mile stretch for at least 9 million years from now. And these days Platte River Valley in Nebraska has become the largest concentrations of sandhill cranes in the world.
Areas like Rowe Sanctuary near Gibbon or the Crane Trust Nature & Visitor Center near Alda are visited by 20,000 and 25,000 people in the season of spring to see the migration of cranes, said Brad Mellema, executive director of the Grand Island and Visitors Bureau.
