Where do they roost? Where do they spend their winters? Which route do they take traveling between Homer, Alaska and the mainland U.S.? Do they all go to the same place? No one knew the answers to these questions so in August, 2008, with a grant from Kachemak Crane Watch and in cooperation with the International Crane Foundation, researcher Gary Ivey and his field assistant, Caroline Herzinger, captured 10 Lesser Sandhill Cranes in Homer and fitted them with radio and satellite transmitters. Now their migration routes are online for all to learn from at werc.usgs.gov/sattrack/cranes/index.html.
