Crane Quiz #4

Directions: Go to Meet the Flock, Hatch Year 2010. Scroll down to click on each chick's photo for a link to its life story (bio page) and you'll find the answers!

Hatch Year 2010 Answer

1. "Champ" is what pilot Brooke calls this younger male, who always shows up for what's happening and tries his hardest every time.

 

 

2. This older female chick often drops out of flights but is pretty good at catching up with the group on her own. One time she flew back to the pen by herself from a half mile away, and the costumes didn't need to go get her. Which chick?

 

 

3. She hatched in Maryland from an egg rescued from the failed nest of the new Eastern Flock's wild crane pair #415 and #505.

 

4. This older chick trusts the costume 100 percent. He greets the costume when it comes to the pen. As long as he knows the costume is near, he’ll do whatever the team is training him to do — again and again, without a second thought.
