Sandhill Crane

http://www.dnr.state.oh.us/portals/9/pdf/pub382.pdf

 

The sandhill crane is among the oldest living

species of birds, dating back 2.5 million years.

Today, it is an endangered species in Ohio.

A native species, the population in Ohio

has decreased due to loss of habitat, primarily

wetlands. Their former breeding range in

the state extended into northwestern Ohio, an

area which held a small breeding population

that disappeared in the 1880s. The last nesting

pair prior to the 1980’s was recorded in 1926

in Huron County. In 1985, a pair appeared in

Wayne County, but did not start reproducing

until 1987. Since that time, nesting pairs have

increased along the Killbuck Valley (Holmes

and Wayne counties). Breeding pairs have also

been reported in Ashland, Ashtabula, Geauga,

Wyandot, and Williams counties. Numbers of

cranes breeding in Ohio will probably continue

to increase as the young from previous years

reach breeding age.

Perhaps the most unique characteristic of

the sandhill crane is its tendency to dance.

Although an integral part of their courtship,

they can be seen dancing any time of the

year. The dance of the sandhill crane includes

many quick steps around each other, wings half

spread with an occasional leap into the air up

to eight feet off the ground. Part of this ceremony

includes bowing towards one another.

Outside of its occurrence during courtship in

the spring, researchers are unclear as to why

this behavior continues throughout the year.

Sandhill cranes are wading birds characterized

by long legs, necks, and bills. The sandhill

crane ranges between 34 and 38 inches in

height and has a six to seven foot wingspan.

Their weight varies from 7.7 to 14.4 pounds according

to the sex of the individual bird and the

race to which they belong. Outward appearance

of the sexes is alike except in size. The

male is slightly larger than the female.

The plumage of the adult sandhill crane is

gray with a bald red skin patch on its forehead.

Their eyes are yellow and their bill, legs, and feet

are blackish. Immature sandhill cranes have a

gray body with a brownish head and they lack

the red skin patch.

There are six races of the sandhill found in

North America. Three of these races—the Mississippi,

Cuban, and Florida—are sedentary and

are the most threatened populations of sandhill

cranes. The Mississippi and Cuban races, numbering

40 to 50 and 200 birds respectively, are

threatened with extinction. Populations of the

other three races are larger and include the

lesser, greater, and Canadian races. The sandhill

cranes seen migrating through and breeding

in Ohio are of the greater sandhill crane

race. These birds winter in Florida and fly north

in late February or early March. The majority

of this race nests in the Great Lakes region of

Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan and their

numbers appear to be increasing.

Some of the more populated races are

hunted in the central and western United States

and Canada.

Habitats and Habits

Sandhill cranes are primarily a wetland dependent

species. On their wintering grounds,

they will utilize agricultural fields; however, they

roost in shallow, standing water or moist bottomlands.

On breeding grounds they require

a rather large tract of wet meadow, shallow

marsh, or bog for nesting. A single pair’s breeding

territory can cover up to 200 acres. They will

build their nests in undisturbed wetlands in up

to three feet of water. The four to five-foot wide

nest consists of marsh plants, tubers, or roots

pulled up by the birds using their bills.

Their diet is varied and the birds will walk

several miles while searching for food. Sandhill

cranes will eat roots, tubers, seeds, berries, grain,

mice, small birds, snakes, lizards, frogs, and crayfish

in wet meadows or bogs. In a dry pasture,

they may feed on grasshoppers, earthworms,

and crickets.

The sandhill crane is a diurnal (active in the

daylight hours) species and will roost at night in

relatively large groups. During daylight hours,

they break up into smaller groups, usually pairs

or family groups.

In flight, the sandhill crane migrates at high

elevations in large flocks, often composed of

thousands of birds. The flight formation is usually

a “V”, but sometimes it’s a straight line. The

birds spend little time gliding and are noted for

a quick upward wingbeat and a longer downward

wingbeat. Sandhill cranes fly with their

necks fully extended and can be distinguished

from herons which fly with their necks bent in

something of an “S” shape. Their flight speed

has been recorded at 25 to 35 mph.

Reproduction and Care of Young

The sandhill crane is monogamous and will

generally only change mates due to the death

of one of the pair. Nest construction usually

begins in April and eggs are laid in May among

the greater sandhill crane race in the Great

Lakes region. Clutch size varies from one to

three eggs; there are usually two. The eggs are

olive with lavender or brown spots and they are

incubated for 28 to 30 days by both the male

and female. Each pair will raise a single brood

in a year; however, they can renest if the eggs

are damaged or destroyed by predators.

After hatching, the older chick is more aggressive

than the younger, and the two must be

separated by the parents. The parents will split

up and walk in separate directions so that one

chick will follow one parent and the other chick

the other parent. The precocial young will

leave the nest in less than 24 hours.

The juveniles will fly 90 days after hatching.

After fledging, the young remain with their

parents throughout the year. The parents will

abandon their young cranes just prior to the

next nesting season. These sexually immature

birds will find a mate as early as three years of

age, but will not actively reproduce until age

five. Little is known of their life expectancy in

the wild. In captivity, the oldest sandhill crane

lived to be 24 years old.

Management Plans

The Division is buying and restoring wetlands

on state property and working with landowners

to protect and restore wetlands on private

properties. The nesting pairs on state property

are left undisturbed to enhance nesting success

rates.

 

Viewing Opportunities

Killbuck and Funk Bottoms wildlife areas provide

the best viewing opportunities for sandhill

cranes. Occasionally, sandhills are seen flying

over Magee Marsh Wildlife Area and Ottawa

National Wildlife Refuge during the spring and

fall migration periods.

 

Do Something Wild!

The sandhill crane is an endangered species

within the state of Ohio. Money to acquire

and restore wetlands, which is a critical habitat

for the sandhill crane, has come through the

Do Something Wild! state income tax checkoff

program. Through the generosity of Ohio citizens,

who either donated through the checkoff

or their direct contribution to the Endangered

Species Special Account, the Division is able

to obtain habitat that will benefit cranes, and

educate and inform Ohioans about our endangered

species. Tax time

 

 

 

is not the only time you can help.

Contributions to our Endangered Species

and Wildlife Diversity program are accepted

throughout the year. To make a donation,

please send a check to: Endangered Species

Special Account, Ohio Division of Wildlife, 1840

Belcher Drive, Columbus, Ohio 43224-1329. All

contributions, whether made on your tax return

or directly, are tax deductible.
