Some New Details
Your whooping crane writer, Jane, was at the Necedah Whooping Crane Festival on September
21 and took these photos. The young whoopers' morning training flights are visible
from the observation tower (photo at right) on the Refuge. Anyone on the Refuge at
dawn can climb the tower to watch the colts and trikes in training.

Thanks a visit with Team members Joe, Kelly, Dan, Brian, Richard, Heather and
others, the Journey North chart for this year's flock now has more fun details about
the birds. Check it out and meet the flock:
Meet the Eastern Flock, Hatch Year
Try This! Journaling Question
- Using the chart, we asked
you earlier to calculate the age range of this year's flock. What evidence of age
differences, if any, can you see in the comments about personality?
Journey North is pleased to feature this educational adventure made possible by
Crane Eastern Partnership (WCEP).
