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.

Flamingos puff up their feathers against the cold as they roost at Laguna Colorada, Bolivia. The variation in temperature between day and night is so extreme that their legs are frozen in a thin layer of ice during the night, which is melted by the sun.
