A view over Texas crane country from the plane. See any Whooping cranes?   This map shows the 115,000-acre refuge where the world's last remaining natural migratory flock of Whooping cranes spends winter. Because you can't see Whooping crane habitat from the refuge roads, a pilot flies Tom over the refuge to count cranes there during migration and winter.
