15th annual Sandhill Crane Festival set at Othello

WILDLIFE WATCHING -- Another great assortment of field trips and programs is being organized for the 15th annual Othello Sandhill Crane Festival, March 23-25 based from Othello, Wash., and the Columbia National Wildlife Refuge.

The festival highlights the spring migration of large, lanky and gorgeous sandhill cranes that pass through the Eastern Washington gleaning food from the region's agricultural fields and resting on the protected refuge lands.

The Northwest Profiles TV segement above, produced by KSPS-TV, is a nice introduction to the festivals.

Check out the schedule of events that should be posted soon on the festival website, and sign up for events and field trips early.
