Going Crane Watching on Channel 6 Outdoors

On this week’s edition of my Weekly Outdoor Report on Omaha’s WOWT-TV/Channel 6 and online at www.wowt.com, we’re heading to Nebraska’s central Platte River valley between Grand Island and Kearney to view the spectacular spring migration stopover of sandhill cranes and other wild fowl. It’s quite a sight to see! Check out these great photos of the cranes taken by co-worker Katie Stacey of our Game and Parks Omaha-Metro Office.

Experience the movement and sounds of the world’s largest gathering of cranes LIVE Thursday night during the 6 p.m. CST newscast with me and the Channel 6 Sports Machine crew.

Remember, if you’re not able to view the live broadcast of the report, video replays of it can be seen after the initial cast at this link: www.wowt.com/sports It can also be accessed on Digital Channel 6.2 and Cox Cable Channel 120. Additionally, Channel 6 runs the outdoor report on Saturdays later in the station’s hour-long 8 a.m. newscast. I appreciate you watching! Here’s some audio of the sandhill cranes along the Platte River in central Nebraska. Make sure to click the Crane-Audio(1) link once, and again, then click the play arrow or open the file if need be to hear sound. Thanks again!
