Greater Sandhill Cranes in Ohio

Greater Sandhill Cranes have already migrated back to Ohio from Florida earlier this month!  I am so excited because I did a recent web search for Greater Sandhill Cranes and Ohio.  Take a look at this webpage:

The population of Greater Sandhill Cranes, endangered in Ohio, has grown from only 4 spotted a decade ago to presently over 20.  My dream would be to own some wetlands or farmland in Northeastern Ohio or Northern Michigan and encourage or raise the population growth of these special birds.  I am fascinated by their large and unusual silhouettes, their anthropomorphic behavior of socializing, courting, pairing, raising their young or colts, but mostly by their ability to survive over 9 million years.
