Preparing for Migration
Keeping Crane Chicks Healthy

  Here's what we know:

The helpers in gray put a loose-fitting hood over a chick's face and eyes. Then they bring it to the veterinarian's tent. (The vets and staff can then work more easily because they don't need to wear the bulky costumes.)

NO talking is aloud when a bird is so close. Only very soft whispering is okay.

The staff works quickly and carefully to inspect the bird for injuries, draw blood to test, and insert a microchip so they can always identify birds.
