October 18, 2014: During the fall, thousands of Sandhill Cranes congregate at Crex Meadows, Wisconsin, then migrate south for the winter. In the evenings as the sun sets, these sandhills move from one end of the meadows to the other. Many people park on one of the roads in between to watch these large birds fly over head in small and large groups. On this evening there were around 5,000 sandhill cranes in the meadows.
