The sandhill cranes that are in the Medaryville area are on their fall migration path. The past years the number of cranes present during the ride number approximately 10,000. The cranes return nightly to the Jasper-Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area after feeding in area farm fields during the day. The Medaryville area is home to the largest concentrations of sandhills east of the Mississippi river.
