Sandhill Crane on the Platte - Original Painting
11.25" x 11.25"
Oil on Wood
Reclaimed Oak Floating Frame
This is part of series on Nebraska's Historic Animals. These species shaped the ecology and culture of the area and were painted at 8 Nebraska State Historical Parks across Nebraska.
Painted at Fort Kearny State Historical Park, this area is home to one of the greatest wildlife spectacles on the planet. Every spring on their northward migration, sandhill cranes stop and mate here in the Platte River valley just behind the fort. This influx of 600,000 cranes (plus hoards of migrating snow geese) is truly a sight to behold.
