Chicks Home! A
PTT reading for #915 on
the night of March 31 put the group of 8 in Monroe County,
Wisconsin and Sara picked up their signals in the Necedah
area on April
1. Migration complete!
Five of the '09 DAR chicks beat them home. (See
eight 2009 juvenile Whooping Cranes that began migration on March
24th from the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) near
Tallahassee, Florida include 908, 910,
911, 914, 915, 918, 925, and 926. By
the time they got that news,
up with the cranes. They were on their own, and they did a
great job of finding their way home!
As of noon April 1, chicks #906 and #912
at the St. Marks NWR, the nine Chassahowitzka juveniles, plus three
have yet to begin their journey north.
