Whooping Cranes Back in Texas

A hunting buddy of mine saw these whooping cranes migrating overhead today.
It’s hard to tell in this picture but he is 100% positive they were whooping cranes.

Don’t whoppers migrate is small family flocks?

Judging by the size of the flock I'd pretty much have to guess those are sandhill cranes. Either way though it's always a treat to see the first flocks arriving.

I saw a flock of whoopers 80+ in Refugio a few years ago. They were 100% positively ID'd as whoopers as we had a biologist with us. But this was in March so they were leaving their wintering grounds...

Cranes

The guy who sent it a research Doctor at MDAnderson. His understudy was wildlife Biologists. He was positive on them being whooping cranes and since only 515 wintered here last year he figured that was about 10% of the total population.

I used to take folks to take pictures of them in that area when I was running a airboat. Interesting birds, and even more interesting people that seek after them
