Well well, look who turned up… and just in time for all the festival folks to see. It’s Henry aka #5-12!

And his little buddy Parent-Reared Whooping crane 30-16…

    Loved meeting everyone at Crane Fest, but the hightlight was seeing Henry and 30-16 foraging . One of them was ripping ears of corn off the stalks for a bit ! …. hm, I wonder where that love of fresh corn started. Thank you OM for all that you do for Whoopers and in educating the public about their plight.
