Are the Whoopers?
Every spring we follow the migration of the very same cranes we tracked
the previous fall. This spring we will make a map to show the journey
north of our 19 young cranes. In total, however, there are now 64 whooping
cranes in the Eastern flock. The
oldest "ultra-cranes" are almost six years old and this
is their 5th migration.
last known locations for the Eastern
whoopers are noted below, linked to their individual biographies
