Every winter Galveston is graced by the presence of our elegant guests, the Sandhill Cranes. Standing nearly 4 feet tall, with striking plumage, they are hard to miss! You have probably seen them on the Island, but how much do you know about this fascinating species? We’ll take a closer look at the natural history and behavior of these graceful birds and celebrate their unique beauty.
Coffee and a light breakfast will be served. After the program, if weather permits, participants will head out on Holiday with the Crane’s signature Crane Crawl. This self-driving tour to nearby crane hotspots will be a real-time opportunity to see Sandhills as they forage and play. You will be given a map and directions. Viewing areas will be outfitted with spotting scopes and volunteers will be on hand to assist and answer questions.
