News Flash! April 20, 2005
Whoopee! We just got the news we've all been waiting for. The only Eastern flock whooping crane chick on the Florida wintering grounds has begun the first journey north! Crane #418, the first (and only) supplemental release chick in the Eastern flock, most likely began his northward migration on Monday, April 18. Details are scanty, but PTT data from April 19 put his location in Georgia. We wish him a safe journey!
