Peanut Returns!

This just happened on the CraneCam. 

Two young male whooping cranes were on the north end of the runway at 5:14am central time. The crane on the left is 4-14 (Peanut) and the other is 11-15.

    I remember the days after Peanut hurt his leg, and we weren’t sure of his prognosis. Your care of him was brilliant. It worked! Otherwise, he might have been doing the “one-legged hop”. Thank you for your loving care of our precious birds. Peanut will always have a special place in my heart. <3

    Good news…..I needed that! Glad to hear about all the little chickies! Great video of Peanut. He’s probably so happy to see the runway mowed for him!

    The chick and nesting count seems like very encouraging news, and watching Peanut dance there at his old stomping ground was a real treat. NOW I’m ready for the day!!
