News from the WCCA

Our friends over at the Whooping Crane Conservation Association posted a photo captured yesterday, which was taken by Brian Johns, Ret. Canadian Wildlife Service and which showed 151 whooping cranes seen together on the staging grounds in Saskatchewan.

In fact, the flock was spread out such that Brian was only able to get just over 100 birds in the photo.

    What a thrill for the photographer to be able to take the picture. Lets hope there are many many more occasions to take similar photos in the years to come.
