Our headquarters was one of Red Sky Production's stops last week for their documentary, "Journey of the Whooping Crane". On Friday, Greg and Rhett of Red Sky filmed the collection of 16 Whooping Crane eggs at Necedah National Wildlife Refuge​ and the transfer of the delicate cargo to our headquarters. The eggs were collected through a trial to force the cranes to re-nest after local black fly hatching (the black flies can drive the cranes off their nests, leading to the loss of the precious eggs). The collected eggs will be hatched at captive breeding facilities this year for reintroduction – a win-win!

We already knew that Aransas National Wildlife Refuge was a special place for Whooping Cranes, but now everyone does with its designation as the number 1 spot for birding by USA Today! The Whooping Cranes enjoyed better habitat conditions this winter, which have prepared them for their migration to Canada; in fact, most have left coastal Texas and have been spotted across the flyway heading north.
