On the morning of March 23rd, a huge herd of wandering sandhill cranes filled the skies of Nebraskan. Two days earlier, the nonprofit Crane Trust, a habitat conservation group, counted approximately 574,000 sandhill cranes in the Central Platte River Valley area. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the group offered virtual migration tours for the first time. Minnesota wildlife photographer Carol Bauer traveled to Nebraska to see the colossal migration for herself. “People come from everywhere to see this phenomenon. It was quite a sight, ”Bauer told Storyful. Photo credit: Carol Bauer via Storyful
