"During migration and winter, non-related sandhill cranes come together to form 'survival groups' which forage and roost together. Such groups often congregate at migration and winter sites, sometimes in the thousands," notes Wiki.
Bob Davis took the above photo this week of sandhills flying just east of Washington Ferry bridge on TN Hwy 30.
We'll be making our annual Ijams Birding & Breakfast Club trip to Hiwassee to see the sandhills on Saturday, February 14.
