Greater Sandhill Cranes ignite creativity and inspiration for local artists 14.9.2014 Steamboat Pilot
There was a new kind of bird roosting on the lawn of Bud Werner Memorial Library on Saturday afternoon. At first glance, the unique species resembled a flock of Greater Sandhill Cranes, but upon closer inspection, it was made clear the birds were works of art created in honor of the annual Yampa Valley Crane Festival. The graceful creatures were part of a new Crane Yard Art event, which helped highlight this year's event. Spearheaded by volunteers who focus their efforts on providing public education about cranes to the community, the local Crane Festival is in its third year and continues to grow in popularity.

Artists from around the area as well as a few young artists from Steamboat Springs High School took part in decorating the cranes ...
