    Will the transmitter be able to be placed on another bird?

      Certainly once it’s refurbished, yes 🙂

    Thank you Louisville Zoo taking Bryce! I hope he remains there as an educational Whooping Crane. If I remember correctly, some hunters in the area (Kentucky and Indiana) need to learn what a Whoopibg Crane looks like so they don’t shoot them “by mistake”. Good luck Bryce, and thanks for the nice picture of him.

    Thanks for the update… wishing him a great recovery ! Every Whooping Crane is special MA Hensarling.

    Do you know the the prognosis for BRYCE at this time? Hopefully they can prepare his wing for flight. Poor baby!!!

      we do not but it’s very likely he will remain in captivity.
