The Sandhill Crane (Antigone canadensis) is a North American species of large crane. It also inhabits the northeastern part of Siberia. The name of this bird comes from a habitat like that of the Nebraska Sandhills on the American Plains. These sandhill cranes were photographed at the Whitewater Draw Wildlife Area where as many as 30,000 cranes spend the winter. The Whitewater Draw Wildlife Area is near McNeal, Arizona, USA.
