Yesterday, we received a report of a whooping crane sighting from our friend Pat Fisher. “Fisher” founded The Feather Wildlife Rehab and Education Center near New London, Wisconsin.
She submitted the following photo, which clearly indicates this crane is male #11-15. This young crane had been in LaSalle County, IL after male #4-13 stole his gal #10-15 from him in early April.
Nice that he’s returned to Wisconsin…
If you see a whooping crane, please try to get the exact legband combination on each leg and fill out this online form.
