  6. How are the Florida Sand-Hill Cranes becoming endangered? • The Cranes have become endangered because the prairies are being taken over by people. • We build cities on these praries and we plow them under to grow our farm crops. • Luckily ,we have enough prairies left that they are not extinct.

  7. What are the habitat of the Florida Sand-Hill Cranes? • Sand-Hill Cranes lives in the grasslands, and they feed in grain fields and pastures. • In Washington, they builded their nest in wetlands in areas that are surrounded by Lodge- pole Pine, Ponderosa Pine, Grand Fir, or Douglas Fir forests. • During winter they lives in, agricultural fields, and river valleys. Sand-Hill Cranes prefer to live in habitats where they have clear views of their surroundings. Source: http://www.seattleaudubon.org/birdweb/bird_details.aspx?id=132
