Volunteer crane trackers Stephen Smith and Shelley Richardson sent along the following images from their efforts yesterday in Greene County, Indiana.
Nine – count ’em – NINE Whooping cranes in one location!
Steve says the group included 24-13, 10-09, 66-15, 17-07, 10-11 and 7-07. The other three cranes have non-functional vhf transmitters and could not be identified.
If you see a whooping crane (or nine), be sure to complete the public sighting form for the Eastern Migratory Population.
