Sandhill Cranes

Status and Harvests of Sandhill Cranes Mid-continent, Rocky Mountain, Lower Colorado River Valley and Eastern Populations – 2016

In an effort to monitor the population trends for select populations of Sandhill Cranes (Antigone Canadensis), annual indices are calculated from aerial surveys. Hunter and harvest data are gathered from the Migratory Bird Harvest Information Program. Combined these data assist Flyway Councils to guide state, provincial, and federal cooperative management of migratory birds, within the framework of the Sandhill Crane Management Plan. Learn More.
