The word "astonishing" is an understatement. This flock caught me by surprise when I was in a wooded area behind the house, so unfortunately didn't get very good video. But the sound that great flocks of these very large birds make is awesome all by itself.
During migration season, the cranes will circle overhead, smaller flocks merging with one another until they become hundreds, even thousands strong. This is one of most awesome wildlife spectacles to be seen here in Northern Illinois.
