Niemeier & Neimeier, "Possible Evidence of Fish-Eating by a Lesser Sandhill Crane from the Central Platte Valley, Nebraska," from Nebraska Bird Review (June 1982) 50(2).
Centrarchid fish scales, probably those of the Green Sunfish (Lepomis cyanellus), were found in the crop of a Lesser Sandhill Crane (Grus canadensis canadensis) from the Central Platte Valley, Nebraska, in March, 1976. Scales were primarily from age class II fish. Fish total length was estimated at 100.60 mm.
