Artist's Description

Sandhill cranes are the only species of crane native to Utah. They can be found scouting for meals of insects and invertebrates in the soggy mud of marshes and wetlands throughout the upper half of our state. The cranes’ fossil record dates back over nine million years, making them one of the oldest species of birds persisting today. These cranes are so well adapted to survival that in those nine million years little has changed about their appearance.

Sandhill cranes generally mate for life at two years of age, finding partners during spring migration and bonding through dancing displays and calls cried out in unison. Chicks are hatched during late spring in floating nests anchored along wetland shores and are cared for by both parents until they are about 10 months old.
