Photo Update

Tom Schultz sent along some images he captured over the past few days, showing 3-14 and 4-12 ‘supervising’ the training sessions with our young crane colts.

They haven’t stepped in to make any corrections or offer advice, so we’ll take that to mean that things are going smoothly.

    They’re just overseeing the training to make sure he is doing everything right.

    Beautiful photographs! I stand in awe of the curiosity of 3-14 & 4-12. They seem almost human yet those small brains and instinct invokes thoughts of a time when there were huge flocks of them. I wonder if behaviors were the same then. Someday we may know. Thanks for the pictures Tom Schults!

    As long as the two subs behave, it’s fun to see them with the colts.

    I hope they don’t kidnap the colts.
