On the MOVE!

It seems some of the EMP Whooping cranes took advantage of the favorable winds Saturday!

A group of four were seen flying north to south over Kane County, IL by several birders and late last week a pair was seen near Champaign, IL.

Keep your eyes to the skies and if you see a Whooping crane, please be sure to fill out a public sighting report: https://www.savingcranes.org/report-whooping-crane/

    I know DAR, PR, and several other of your acronyms. But I cannot figure out EMP.

      oops! My bad. EMP = Eastern Migratory Population

    Up, Up and away. God speed them and protect them on their journey into crane life.

    Its times like these I wish we lived further West. Sadly, not too many sightings in Western Pa. 🙁
