Wisconsin DNR pilot Bev Paulan flew on Monday and again yesterday and both days could only locate two crane chicks.
W7-16 was flying short sorties with both adults (29-09 and 12-03) closely watching.
W9-16 was with mom 8-05 while dad 1-04 was a short distance away.
It would appear that the oldest chick this year, number W3-16 disappeared from the landscape the preceding week. Mom 4-11 is now in Juneau County, WI associating with lone male #29-08.
