Default Whooping Cranes Need Your Help!

I am sorry if this has been posted somewhere before, but I just found this contest sponsored by Pepsi. Operation Migration qualifies for $25,000 and can use all the help it can get in establishing an Eastern Migratory flock of endangered Whooping Cranes.

Please check out this site and vote daily. Tell your friends!!

4 rare whooping cranes sighted in South Dakota
excerpt from above:

Four rare whooping cranes have been sighted in northern South Dakota.
The Aberdeen American News reports that birders and others have been watching two adults and two young whoopers that have been feeding in harvested corn and bean fields north of Aberdeen since late October.
Federal wildlife officials are monitoring the site to ensure the birds are not harassed...

It's fun to follow the migration. You can get the daily report emailed to you. The very first year that they did the migration, I happened to be in FL and was able to see them fly over. Very exciting.
