In case you missed it… I’m beginning to wonder if the folks at NBC aren’t turning into full-fledged Craniacs, which is wonderful! In my opinion more networks should focus attention on good news stories – There’s too much doom and gloom in the average nightly newscast.
This past Saturday, NBC featured a segment about the annual migration of Sandhill cranes and Snow geese, which occurs on the Platte River in Nebraska each spring. It’s news coverage like this that will inspire people who are totally unaware of the goings on in our natural world. Especially, when those of us in the north are still mostly holed up inside due to a very cold winter season.
If you didn’t get to watch the segment, you can view it online.
While you’re at it, why not have another look at the Whooping crane story NBC ran on January 11th. And don’t forget to check out the Rowe Sanctuary Crane Camera to see the Platte River spectacle for yourself!
