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.
