Bev Paulan sent this photo – taken over the weekend following the return of the adventurous #4-12 to the St. Marks release pen site. As of this writing we still have no word on the whereabouts of Whooping crane #11-12. If only #4-12 would tell us.
Thanks to aircraft owner Steve Fults from Panacea and his pilot son Steve Fults Jr., Brooke was able to get airborne over the weekend to try to locate #11-12 (to no avail). Below is a photo showing the St. Marks winter release pen and surrounding area. Can you spot the cranes?
