Report Sightings

What to Report:

  • How many cranes you observed;
  • Where and when you saw them – the date, time, and coordinates (lat and long, if available) or specific place name;
  • What they were doing, including any territorial behavior that might indicate a nest or young nearby;
  • Number of young, if any; and
  • What kind of habitat they were in: e.g. beach, slough, wetland, forest, road, estuary, upland grasslands, islands.

Please approach them carefully, they are very sensitive to disturbance during the breeding season.
