Love the video! Those are confident cranes to raise young so close to humans. I love in Ontario and I know of an area where we have Sandhills who breed there but too secretive and in general we do not know exactly where, as it should be.
Thank you for showing this.

I've read about the dangers to many kinds of mammals from the stuff that people use to make their lawns "beautiful", but does anyone know of any studies about young birds and lawn "treatments"? The cranes have raised colts in that area for more than twenty years.
