This is a great program for anyone interested in seeing the migration of the Sandhill Cranes and Prairie Chickens and Sharp-tailed Grouse on their leks. The program was scheduled so that the crane migration was at its peak and the grouse and prairie chickens had started dancing on the leks. The accommodations and food were fine and the bus we used for travel from site to site was comfortable. The leaders were very organized making this an altogether enjoyable trip.

The birding program was very informational and the stay at the Calamus Outfitters was a great feature of this trip.
