Or are they?
If you read Joe’s post this morning, you’ll know that whooping cranes 4-17 and 6-17 were captured and relocated yesterday in an attempt to further disrupt the social structure of the Costume-Reared cohort.
Colleen reports the 3 remaining cranes at White River Marsh were present and accounted for this morning – up until 10:40 am that is….
She and Brooke have checked all the usual spots and beyond and cannot detect ANY beeps for #’s 1, 2 or 8-17 – the remaining three cranes.
I’m pretty sure Colleen has been staring at the email on her phone – silently willing #2-17’s GSM device to fire off an email so we’ll know for sure… Maybe everyone out there reading this can starting chanting 2-17, 2-17, 2-17.
We’ll let you know as soon as we know for sure but it appears the trio MAY have begun heading south!
