We appreciate as much notice as possible. 



Many visitors come to be near the Sandhill Cranes, to be part of their early morning conversations. 

Some seek the opportunity to photograph these grand avians. We want to accommodate everyone, so

bear with us as this venture is evolving. 

Photography is best from mid through late March, giving the cranes time to adjust to their surroundings.

For those whose primary goal is photography, we suggest reserving the blind exclusively. We offer exclusive reservation of the blind for up to three people. If this interests you, please contact us to discuss this option.

Sandhill Cranes feed and roost in different places from day to day, and year to year.

We will do our best, but can not guarantee where the cranes will decide to land.
