I finally made it over to north-central Indiana this fall (2016) to visit the Jasper-Pulaski Wildlife area. Each year the Greater Sandhill Cranes stop-over on there way south for the Winter. These Cranes summer in northern Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and southern Canada and migrate to the southeastern states to winter. We have three types of Cranes in the US - the Greater and Lesser Sandhill and the Whooping Cranes. As you probably know the Whooping Cranes are on the endangered list. There was one spotted in the area when I was there but I was not among the fortunate ones to see it. The Lesser Sandhill Cranes are further West (large numbers around the Platte River in Nebraska) and are more numerous and smaller than these Cranes.
