  1. Are the cranes still around and if so where is the best area to see them

    • The cranes are still here. The best place to see them is in south Gainesville, at the University of Florida’s Beef Unit on SW 23rd Street immediately north of Williston Road (State Road 331). You should be able to see a couple hundred (or more) at pretty close range. Morning is the best time to see them there, though they often stay until late afternoon.
