What is in the box?

Crane #601 dropped out on the Dec. 3 leg of the first journey south. The team caught, boxed, and drove him (and two other birds) to the next stop at Gordon County, Georgia.

Marie and Charlie make room in the DNR van while Walter and Laurie wait to load #601 inside his box. The chick can't see out, so the crew is not in costumes here.
