Wisconsin DNR pilot Michael Callahan flew over the Wisconsin Rectangle reintroduction area yesterday, which includes Horicon and White River Marsh areas.
During his flight he located DAR 18-11 at the Horicon Marsh and a group of SIX Whooping cranes just north of our camp at White River Marsh SWA.
The group of six consisted of three males: 4-12, 5-12 and 4-14 (Peanut) and three females: 3-14, 9-14 and 10-14.
A bit to the west, in Marquette County and near the Germania Marsh SWA, Michael located males 4-13 and 9-13 along with female 7-14.
Another female (8-14) was located in Dane County, WI where she has been for the past several weeks.
