Nearing Migration Time…

It’s almost that time of year when Whooping cranes will begin heading south for the winter. If you spot one, please be sure to complete a public sighting report.

    For sure! Always looking up and remembering.

    it’s this time of year that I long to hear the trykes fire up and travel with Brooke et al as they take our precious cargo down to St. Marks. I miss those day’s so much. Heather I don’t know how you bear it. Thank you for all you continue to do on behalf of those magnifcent animals.

    I have moved the Whooping Crane Sighting Report to a special folder under my “Cranes” section so that I can access it quickly in case I should see any Whoopers in my part of south central Florida.
    I live near Lake Okeechobee, at the northern boundary of the Everglades. Occasionally, Whooping Cranes make their way this far south and even farther. It is one thing that I might be able to do, and if I can, I will. I hope others who live in an area where they could conceivably see Whoopers will make a similar effort, if they haven’t done it before. It is one way to help, and so many of us want to help!

      Last winter, three Whoopers spent the winter in the Lake Okeechobee area 🙂
