Sandhill cranes return to Barren River Lake


Each year thousands of sandhill cranes flock to Barren River Lake to roost on the lake’s mud flats for the winter.

To provide people with a better understanding of why the birds choose to winter in Barren County each year and to give folks a chance to see them up close, Barren River Lake State Resort Park is once again hosting Nature Watch Weekends Jan. 25-27 and Feb. 8-10.

“It’s an educational weekend. We try to educate them and teach them why the sandhill cranes are here,” said Jamie Avery, park program services supervisor for Barren River Lake State Resort Park. “Sandhill cranes are migratory birds, so we talk about why they are migrating through the area.”
