Sandhill cranes are known for their graceful, energetic dancing and unique loud, rolling trumpeting sound. These cranes tend to nest in isolated wetlands, marshes, bogs, wet meadows, prairies, and other moist habitats, preferring those with shallow standing water. While hiking through Glacial Ridge NWR, it is common to hear their unique call up to 2.5 miles away as they fly overhead.
