Each spring the most incredible migration event in the world passes through the North Platte, Nebraska area. More than 400,000 Sandhill Cranes spend about six weeks in the North Platte River valley fortifying themselves for the nesting period to come. While they are here, the North Platte River is the perfect place to view the spectacular concentrations of Sandhill Cranes as they come to strategically roost for the night, or as they awake and take off for another day of feeding. In between their rests on the river, they will spend their days dancing in our cornfields. Dusty Trails offers three different tours to see the amazing spectacle that is the Sandhill Crane Migration: Daytime Dancing Tours, Sunrise River Blind Tours, and Sunset River Blind Tours. While you're here, also take a Prairie Chicken tour for the ultimate birding experience!
