It’s a Boy! And a Girl!

Each year it’s a guessing game as to which gender each whooping crane colt is. The odds are pretty good at 50/50 but it’s always fun to guess based on their personality traits…

Well wait no more! The results are in and we have three boys and three girls! 

Wait, that’s only six you say? You’re right – and it seems we still have to wait a bit longer for the gender of #2-17. 

Here is the Class of 2017 Modified Costume Reared Cohort:

Crane Hatch Date Legband Gender
1-17 4/24/17 White Male
2-17 4/28/17 Green/Black Unknown
3-17 4/29/17 Pink/Red Male
4-17 4/30/17 Green Male
6-17 5/2/17 Red/ Female
7-17 5/3/17 Orange Female
8-17 5/3/17 Black/ Female

 So it seems Bigfoot, the young colt who owns the rather large feet, is, in fact, a girl…

    So Bigfoot is a lady! Great for dancing, nest sitting, and booting the gentlemen birds into line!! : )

    With regards to calling the poor girl “big foot”, even ugly ducklings grow up to become graceful Swans!
