This image certainly illustrates that they are, in fact, the last living dinosaurs.

We need to save them… We hope you’ll help.

    The bird banding station where I volunteer is located in far northern Illinois. We can walk into Wisconsin it’s so north. In March when we’re putting up and checking nets, we often hear flocks of Sandhill Cranes flying over, calling to each other. One day, I was putting up a net with our Master Bander. I told him that I never get tired of hearing the cranes calling – it sounds so prehistoric. He smiled at me and said, “It is.”

    Hello Brooke, If one could imagine a 5th “finger”, then I think the Whooping Cranes foot pictured looks very much like a human left hand.

    Brooke, I hope you saw the picture I texted to Operation Migration today of the whopper I saw in Venice, Florida this past weekend.

      Susan, how did you send the photo? I’m not seeing it in any of our channels.
