Whooping Crane Visit

Six whooping cranes made an unexpected stop at a swamp near my farm in southeast Nebraska. Five adults and one juvenile spent several days at the Father Hupp Wildlife Management area. Whooping cranes are the tallest birds in North America and are an endangered species. This image was captured from a public viewing area one half mile from their preferred area, in the swamp they shared with hundreds of ducks and geese.
