operationmigration.org has been working to reintroduce the whooping crane back into the wild. Check out their website for in depth information. This morning we got up at 5:30 am (second day in a row, but they canceled yesterday) and drove down to the coast to see the fly over as they were placing 7 crane at the St. Marks Wildlife Area. When we arrived it was a balmy 25 degrees F. They flew right at us (with the sun in direct line), then over head, and then around to the wildlife area. I consider it a Bucket List item, seeing Whooping Cranes.
