Sandhill Cranes Flock to Paynes Prairie
Thousands of sandhill cranes are hanging out at Paynes Prairie Preserve -- and they brought some birdwatchers with them.
Birdwatchers also flocked to the park en masse to see the birds. And Wednesday morning they got a surprise. Two whooping cranes were spotted in the sea of sandhills.
Whooping cranes are endangered, and Park Ranger Jim Weimer calls their visit quite the treat.
