Counting Cranes

Wisconsin DNR pilot Bev Paulan flew her first survey last week and found more than 60 Whooping cranes back on their summer territories in Wisconsin!

    Hurray; what wonderful news and pictures! I loved seeing 9 at Rockport/Port Aransas in November. Definitely a bucket list item for me.

    I hope the “authorities” who doubted your efforts would work are paying attention to all your good news. (I’m sure they are.) It must be gratifying to you – on all levels. Hooray! You go, whoopers!
