Whooping Crane Chicks
Preparing for an Amazing Journey

The whooping crane chicks that hatch in captivity this spring have an exciting summer ahead. They have a lot to learn before they journey south this fall — following an ultralight airplane!
Here's a photo story preview about the training and travels ahead of them:

  1. Click to our summer adventures slide show.
  2. Write captions to describe what you think is happening in each photo. (Write on the slide show handout, or print your own copy of the matching booklet to write in.)
  3. Come back in September to find out how these super-special chicks spent the summer!
