Hatch Year 2008 Crane #

1. Which chick survived an attack by her brother, only to be so stressed that her feathers didn't grow well enough for her to stay with the Class of 2008?


 

2. Which DAR (Direct Autumn Release) chick is still timid and easily spooked?

 

 

3. Which Cohort 3 chick was the first in her group to fledge, and is the best flier in that group?

STRATEGY TIP: Remember that the cranes are still in three groups: oldest (cohort 1), middle (cohort 2) and youngest (cohort 3). How can you use that fact to search for the cohort 3 bird who was first in her group to fledge?

 

 

4. Which chick has been responsible for the loss of three birds in the Class of 2008?
