You may recall last week I said all the juveniles in the 2015 aircraft-led cohort had pretty much stayed put.
This week it’s a different story. After staying at their Marquette County location for about a week, the group of four moved east to Sheboygan County, WI. We know they’re exact location but will not divulge so as to protect them.
Doug Pellerin checked on them yesterday during his weekly volunteer tracking rounds and sent us the following photos to share:
Doug reports there is a private wetland where the group appears to be roosting in the evenings.
Female crane #2-15 remains in Door County, Wisconsin and we’ve had to telemetry data on crane #1-15, which means she’s in an area with no cellular service.
Have you checked out the CraneCam yet? Yesterday was the first day of broadcasting a live stream from White River Marsh and we had four Whooping cranes sightings!
Pictured below is the pair 3-14/4-12 on the wing.
