Sandhill Crane Migration

Sandhill Crane Watchers Special

Every spring they come.  A half million Sandhill Cranes, most of the Sandhill Cranes on this earth.  For a long and splendid month in March and early April they live and dance along the Platte River north of Minden, Nebraska.  There may be a Whooping Crane among them, traveling along to Arctic nesting grounds.  Together, these magnificent birds represent one of Natures most unforgettable spectacles.  The Pioneer Motel offers special room rates and admission prices to the Pioneer Village during the migration.
