Sandhill Crane Map


Sandhill Crane

The sandhill crane has an ancient lineage, having existed relatively unchanged for at least 10 million years, and some estimates exceed 20 million. Their close relatives lived beside T-Rex and Triceratops. Consequently, this ancient species has been whimsically described as a “dancing dinosaur”.

You might see these tall birds with their red foreheads while visiting one of the local parks, lakeshores or even while catching a round of golf on one of the many local courses. If you desire a more natural setting, try Disney’s Wilderness Preserve, which is open daily from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm.
