What is this little chick doing?

This is chick #602 on May 10, 2006. She hatched on May 6. She likes to stay warm so she picked this place for a nap. She is under a warming light. She is lying on a pretend whooping crane because it makes her feel safe. Crane models and puppets, as well as real cranes nearby, help her to recognize whooping cranes as her species.
