Sandhill Cranes have an elegant tall, warm gray body with crimson cap. They are known for their dancing skills. Courting cranes stretch their wings, pump their heads, bow, and leap into the air in a graceful and energetic dance. Some start breeding at two years old while others not until they are seven. They mate for life, which can mean two or more decades of staying with their mates year-round. The oldest Sandhill can on record was at 37 years and 3 months old.
