Sandhill Crane

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   Sandhill Crane
Sandhill Crane
Some info from Wikipedia regarding my backyard visitor: Though the Sandhill Crane is not considered threatened as a species, the Florida Sandhill Crane is far less common, with some 5,000 individuals remaining. They are most threatened by habitat destruction and probably depend on human management in the long run. In Florida, it is protected, and if killed, carries a very high monetary penalty. This subspecies is under protection of state and federal law at this time. Since the loss of habitat is a somewhat controllable cause of a declining population, habitat preservation is a valuable management measure. The current outlook for the Florida sandhill crane, if it can be maintained on the protected habitats, is good.
