Taken from our front porch after hearing his call. I just love these guys, and they are so fun to watch. Sandhill Cranes give loud, rattling bugle calls, each lasting a couple of seconds and often strung together. They can be heard up to 2.5 miles away. The ones here in Florida don't migrate, we have them year-round. Their call is so unmistakable, here is a UTube link so you can hear it.
