Did you know?
Much of the habitat sandhill cranes inhabit is wetland and shallow marsh. In Arizona, these uniquely prehistoric looking birds can be enjoyed at the Willcox Playa Wildlife Area, Whitewater Draw Wildlife Area, and the Cibola National Wildlife Refuge. For those that wish to assure these habitats for cranes and other migratory birds for future generations, consider buying a state duck stamp and federal duck stamp.

These conservation stamps are not only works of art worth collecting; they are key funding sources for obtaining these critical habitats in Arizona and across North America.
