    During the years from 1980 - 1990, the Whooping Crane's population increased
    the most from any other decade.

    We think it has risen the most in this decade because the Whooping Crane's
    eggs (or some of their eggs) have been placed in the nests of the Greater
    Sandhill Crane's nest. These other cranes raised the babies, therefore,
    there are more cranes.
