Whooping cranes survive Texas devastating drought - KiiiTV3.com South Texas, Corpus Christi, Coastal Bend
excerpt from above:
Quote:
The endangered whooping cranes that winter on the Texas Gulf Coast survived a historic drought and their numbers appear stable.

Biologists had feared the cranes would not have sufficient forage because the drought had made their preferred foods scarce.

During a drought in 2009, biologists counted more than 50 dead birds. This time, they conducted prescribed burns to bring food to the surface...

I'm so glad! And I hope we never see droughts like those again!
