Whose Antenna Broke?
Citizen scientists are helping keep track of the Class of 2011. This April 20 sighting was reported on WCEP's public sightings page. Which crane is it? Thanks to citizen scientist Linda Halpin's sighting report and photo, the colored legbands identify this crane. The photo also confirms that the antenna has broken off the PTT device on her right leg.

  • The legbands are G/R on the left leg and R/W on the right leg. Which Class of 2011 crane is this? Check our band-code chart to see.
