The Sandhill Cranes are here in the Valley! Sandhill cranes are very distinctive birds because of their bugle call, their large size, their pale gray body feathers and red featherless cap and their complex behavior patterns. Crane viewing can be done on your own or as a class field trip. Tours and information on self-guided visits and field trips can be found at the California Department of Fish and Wildlife site https://www.wildlife.ca.gov/Regions/3/Crane-Tour or call (209)234-3435. Information on Sandhill Crane field trips and activities for the classroom can be found at http://soscranes.org/visit-the-cranes/for-teachers.
