The group of 5 birds in Emmons County, ND, apparently remained at the site through
the snowstorm that hit ND this week. Only a couple of inches in the area where the
birds were, but up to 10" in eastern ND. Nebraska only got strong NW winds.
Sounds like nice weather for the next 5 days in Nebraska.
October 25: 8 adult and 0 young whooping cranes present at Aransas
