Quick Location Update

There isn’t a whole lot different to report as we’re now in the heat of summer and all but two cranes are at their last reported locations.

When cranes return from the southern terminus, there is typically a spring wandering period – especially for younger birds that haven’t yet established a territory that needs to be defended.

The 2015 cranes appear to have finally settled down – except for the two youngest; 10-15 & 11-15.

They spent the first part of July in LaSalle County, IL and returned a couple weeks ago and are now in Dane County, Wisconsin.
