“Sandhill Cranes mate for life, choosing their partners based on dancing
displays. Displaying birds stretch their wings, pump their heads, bow, and leap
into the air. Although each female usually lays two eggs, only one nestling
typically survives to fledge. Mated pairs and their juvenile offspring stay
together all through the winter, until the 9- to 10-month-old juveniles finally
separate from their parents the following spring.”
