Thousands of sandhill cranes (Grus canadensis) roost on the Platte River during their annual migratory stopover at the Rowe Audubon Sanctuary near Gibbon, NE. With water in the river fully appropriated for urban areas and agriculture, many wonder how long it will be until the river runs dry. Some 600,000 to 800,000 cranes use just a few miles of the river in central Nebraska–areas that have been been mechanically cleared of the woody vegetation that the birds can’t tolerate.

Near Needles, CA., workers clear roadways through the Mojare desert on BLM land as part of a project to enhance a new casino area being built by the folks with the Fort Mojave Indian Tribe. Whenever building/construction in the desert is federally related like this, a “monitor” is usually present to walk with the construction gear and look out for desert tortoises.
