Abstract: The Sandhill Crane (Grus canadensis) is a very large and spectacular bird, familiar to many in British Columbia. Its habitat includes secluded wetlands, meadows and estuaries. During migration, it is a highflying, raucous flocking bird. Three subspecies breed in British Columbia, but only general information is known about their populations or distribution. Sizes and taxonomy of breeding populations are largely unknown. The Chilcotin-Cariboo region is the centre of the province’s breeding population, but remote areas of the central and northern mainland coast and adjacent large islands, northern Vancouver Island, and the Fort Nelson Lowland may hold more cranes than currently known. The Queen Charlotte Islands contain a significant (exact size unknown) breeding population. Small breeding populations are still present in the lower Fraser River valley and north Okanagan. One or two pairs now breed in the East Kootenay Trench and may be pioneers of a new British Columbia population. Migrants that breed in Alaska
