Wild & Free

On Friday last week Doug Pellerin managed to catch up with four of the ultralight-guided cohort from last year. Specifically, 6, 8, 10 & 11-15.

The week before this foursome had ventured down to LaSalle County, IL for an afternoon before making their way back to Winnebago County, WI where Doug found them frolicking in a flooded ag field.

    The Weinandts from SW Minnesota say HI and so glad you are still our eyes for watching out for these precious white birds. Like everyone else we are hoping for a very successful year for these beautiful young birds. Thanks and keep up the great work!!!!

    Kids love to play in the mud, and I guess Whooper kids do too. Thanks for the great photos.

    I loved watching them the days they were here in virtually my back yard. They are beautiful birds and striking when in flight. They all stayed very close to each other the whole time they were here. Since I know their numbers now I will definitely follow their progress through your posts. Thank you!
