Sandhill cranes in Florida are like the people, there are locals and also snowbirds...

Welcome to the Paul Rebmann Nature Photography Newsletter March 2017 edition.

One of the many cool things about living in Florida is experiencing Sandhill cranes. We have two distinct populations of these majestic birds in the Sunshine State. About five thousand Florida sandhill cranes live here year-round and are considered a separate subspecies from the more numerous greater sandhill cranes that only winter here. The migratory cranes breed in the Great Lakes region of North America and arrive in large flocks during November and December. This increases the crane population of the state about six-fold until they depart, typically March and April.

I have visited Clearwater Lake in the Ocala National Forest on several occasions over the past few years and it seems that every time there are a couple of Sandhill Cranes there. Here are two of the new images that I made during these visits.
