Sand Hill Crane web_wprled

If you haven’t seen our Sand Hill Cranes, you are encouraged to get to Sandy Ridge Metroparks Reservation in North Ridgeville. Bring your binoculars, your camera, and your walking shoes, and don’t forget to dress for the weather.

A good Stretch after a good Prene. With their distinctive loud metallic cry Sandhill Cranes announce their presence long before you see them. This crane, photographed in the evening sunlight, was at Sandy Ridge in North Ridgeville. One of four versions of photo.
