More Whoopers Head South

It seems the pair spotted in Knox County, Indiana over the past weekend weren’t the only ones that caught the early southward migration bug.

Monday afternoon, volunteer tracker Leroy Harrison spotted “George & Gracie” aka 9-03 (F) & 3-04 (M) at their normal winter location in Wayne County, IL.

This pair hatched two chicks in the spring but sadly, neither survived to fledge.

    Hope George and Gracie survive the winter in Illinois and can try again in the spring! Thanks Leroy for continuing to track these wonderful birds.
