Meet the Flock: Get to Know the Cranes
Crane Quiz #2

See: Meet the Flock, Hatch Year 2007 and scroll down to click on each chick's photo for a link to its life story page.

Hatch Year 2007 ANSWER

1. What is the age range, or age spread, between the oldest chick and the youngest chick? (Find age range by counting number of days between hatch date of the oldest chick and the youngest chick.)

TIP: Remember that the cranes are numbered according to hatching order (age). How can you use this information to help you quickly go to the oldest chick's life story page and the youngest chick's page?

 

2. During flights with her group of 8, this chick dropped out or turned back. On August 22 she FINALLY stayed with them for the whole flight of 20 minutes!

 

 

3. Which Cohort 2 (middle group in age) chick got so scared by the Swamp Monster that she ran straight for the pen and banged into the fence?
