Sandhill cranes are about 3-4 feet tall. The wingspan can be over 5 feet wide. Sandhill cranes spend most of their lives in freshwater wetlands, including marshes, wet grasslands and river basins. Sandhill cranes have an interesting and distinctive call. Both the males and females make a rattling "kar-r-r-r- o-o-o" sound. The call varies in length, strength and loudness depending on its intention. The loudest and most noticeable call is during the mating season. Males and females will sing loudly and in unison.
