  • Fall Crane Migration at Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge

    In late September, migrating flocks begin to arrive from the north. By the middle of October, the refuge hosts thousands of cranes as they roost at night in refuge wetlands, and then fly out to area croplands to forage during the day. Swing by the Refuge HQ, or take a look at this map below to find more information about the best crane viewing areas at, and near, Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge. The current count is 8,800 cranes!
