Something Old, Something New …

Listen to the cranes call out during their Ice Aged migration captured on iPhone.

Sandhill Cranes have many types of calls:  Kid cranes say, “I’m hungry!”  Adult cranes say, “Alert!  Danger is nigh!”  And in this clip, all cranes are saying, “My belly’s full.  Let’s plop onto the Platte [River] and nap until I’ve made room to eat more corn and frogs tomorrow morning.”

Mmm.  Corn and frogs.
