Each chick is precious, rare and valuable.
Their health is important. Here, aviculturalist Sara
uses a needle to put crane medicine into cranberries.
The chicks gobble the cranberries, medicine and all.
Other tricks help too. What if a chick drops out or won’t
follow the ultralight plane? A pilot or trainer becomes Swamp
Monster. He or she hides under a tarp and runs, making
scary noises. The chicks learn fast!
