Sandhill Crane numbers are up

Posted: Updated:

The Arizona Game and Fish Department says the migratory Sandhill Crane population is booming.

There is an estimated 32,000 cranes in the Sulphur Springs Valley. The largest concentration is at AZGFD’s Whitewater Draw Wildlife Area in McNeal, with 19,485.

The cranes travel in groups, searching for food.

Sandhill Cranes usually arrive in mid-September to early October and begin to leave around mid-February.
