Meet the Flock: Getting to Know the Cranes
Crane Quiz #1

Hatch Year 2006 Crane # ____

1. Which chick was the very first to hatch from an egg laid by wild parents in the new flock?



2. This chick has made so many landings in the swamp during training that the pilots gave him private flying lessons. He's very independent!



3. Which chick weighed the most at the pre-migration health check? Which one weighed the least?

TIP: Remember that the cranes are numbered according to hatching order (age). How can you use this information to make predictions before you look for the answers? What factors might affect weight?




4. He always wanted to be the top dog (top crane) in Cohort 3 (the youngest chicks). He recently got mad when two adult whoopers showed up on the training strip and chased them off! Which chick?
