Colorado’s San Luis Valley revels every spring as 20,000 Sandhill cranes hang out for a month at the Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge - an established artificial haven where people place barley and pump up water from underground aquifers to create the massive marshes the birds need to gain energy for the migration north. The cranes eat and gain strength for breeding up north in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. A new Colorado rule limiting pumping of aquifer water in San Luis Valley could endanger the habitat.
