Sandhill Crane Cam
The Crane Clock: Best times to view Sandhill Cranes
The best times to view sandhill cranes on the wildlife camera will be from daylight until about an hour afterwards before they have left the roost to feed for the morning. They will return to Whitewater Draw sometime in the late morning, generally before noon. The cranes typically remain at the wildlife area for the remainder of the day and should be visible. On occasion they will fly out to feed again in the afternoon and return in the late evening at around dark. Please note that we will do our best to keep the camera trained on cranes and other interesting subjects however sometimes wildlife is uncooperative. If there is not much happening when you visit the camera, please check us again soon. The camera will be available for public viewing from October (when cranes first start to arrive at Whitewater Draw) through March or early April when they leave for their northern migration to the nesting grounds.
