For millions of years the Greater Sandhill Crane (Grus canadensis) has migrated through the San Luis Valley. Over 20,000 cranes visit the valley in the spring and fall. Cranes travel an average of 150 miles a day. Normally they fly below 5,000 feet, but have been observed as high as 11,000 feet. Cranes are omnivores, thriving on grain, but will also consume berries, insects, small mammals, crustaceans, amphibians and small birds. The Valley's population of Sandhills migrate from Bosque del Apache near Albuquerque to Idaho.
