Default Whooping Crane Update

Whooping Crane Update
Migration Update: March 12, 2010

Journey North Whooping Cranes Spring 2010
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Migration is underway! One crane from the Texas wintering ground has made the earliest departure on record, while one '09 chick has her own claim to migration fame. At least 27 older cranes in the Eastern flock are on the journey north. Meet a "Crane Extraordinaire" in our slideshow and test your skill at identifying whoopers in our photo quiz. How could it be useful for a crane to change its crown color...

Eight of the Class of 2009 are on their way back to Wisconsin from Florida. They have gotten a little off course and are now in Indiana.

Last year we went to the Necedah Whooping Crane Fest in Sept. and took a tour of the refuge where the public doesn't get to go. I only saw two Whoopers at a long distance.

I will be following them again when the chicks arrive here from Patuxent.

Journey North Whooping Cranes Spring 2010

The "St. Marks 8" crane-kids completed migration April 1! Fly their journey with a quick video clip. Five 2009 DAR chicks are back too. Meanwhile, a record whooper sighting created excitement in Kansas and the time of peak Texas departures is near. Our slideshow tells how two wild cranes nicknamed YAY and RAY helped launch a new research project and one of the cranes is in this photo. What's happening?
