Sandhill Cranes along East Canyon Creek.

Swaner Nature Preserve and EcoCenter welcomed its newest resident May 1.

The fluffy sandhill crane chick hatched Wednesday and is expected to stay in the nest for the next few days.

In a Facebook post the preserve says sandhill crane chicks, or colts, are mobile as soon as they hatch and will leave the nest a day or two after to forage with their parents.

You can watch the cranes on Swaner’s livestream.
