No other bird of any size can bellow out a louder noisy echo than the Sandhill Crane. More notably, a pair of Sandhill Cranes. The loudest title among birds use to belong to the Canadian Geese.  But in more recent years, a new claim to become nature’s head trumpeter has shifted to another of our feathered friends. Yes, a new king of the noise with at least five times the volume, that carries ten times the distance, and in unison, in perfect synchronization between a pair of cranes… the birds, are relatively new comers to the Michigan landscape. Learn more about the Michigan Sandhill Crane.   You can listen to the calls of the cranes here… Calls of the Cranes
