The sun rises across central Nebraska. As another spring day gradually comes to life, hundreds of thousands of temporary residents make their presence known through sound.
Every year some 80 percent of the world's Sandhill cranes make their way through a 75-mile stretch of Nebraska's central Platte River Valley on their spring migration.
"Crane Song" weaves together striking visuals and majestic sounds of the birds' journey with the stories and insights of the individuals who observe these creatures, as well as landowners endeavoring to ensure a habitat that is welcoming to the cranes.
Production of "Crane Song" made possible by the Elizabeth Rubendall Foundation, the Theodore G. Baldwin Foundation, Sandhills Publishing, Chief Industries, Inc. and the Platte River Whooping Crane Maintenance Trust, Inc.
