Sad News From Florida

The entire group of 18 Whooping Cranes that flew through Winnebago County just last fall perished in the awful storms in Florida.  The young cranes began their journey from Necedah National Wildlife Refuge in Wisconsin and spent two days on local farmland in Winnebago (my county).  This is a terrible setback for this amazing project.

If you wish to support this project check out Operation Migration.  Our hearts go out to all the hard workers that are helping the cranes out and of course to the young ones that died so tragically.

  1. Just heard on NBC news that one of those 18 were found alive! After counting they only had 17 there and a signal coming from their transmitters which lead them to the live one!
