LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Sandhill cranes have begun arriving in central Nebraska as part of their annual migration from wintering grounds in the southern U-S to their breeding grounds in Canada.

     . March is the prime time to see the roughly 500,000 sandhill cranes, about 80% of the world's total population, visit Nebraska to forage for food along the Platte River. Endangered whooping cranes and other rare birds also sometimes make an appearance.
