Imagine you are a crane tracker. Who this whooper?
Clue #1: Green-over-white radio transmitter bands
on the left leg. (The right leg is tucked up into roost position.)
Clue #2: No traces of tawny brown feathers tell
us it’s an adult.
Bonus Clue: SHE likes to be alone.
If you said #107, you’re right. She left her flockmates
during their first journey north. She migrated back to Wisconsin
all by herself. She keeps
to herself ever since. See the bio pages for
her story and the others in her flock. How many flew south that first
year with the ultralights?
How many returned in spring? What happened to the
others? Answers are at "Meet
the Flock, 2001."
