Visit North Platte Executive Director provides advice on viewing Sandhill Cranes

NORTH PATTE, Neb. (Nebraska) – Sandhill crane viewing season has officially begun and an official is encouraging anyone attempting to view the birds to proceed with caution.

“They’re migrating to Siberia via Oklahoma and Kansas. They’re heavily hunted, so when they get to Nebraska they’re a little nervous,” said Lisa Burke, executive director of Visit North Platte. Burke also had a few tips to offer so people could get the most out of their experience viewing the majestic Sandhill Cranes.
