Re: Snagged a whooping crane during a long lunch break this week...

I still saw groups of them in the fields (and flying over the highway) to feed in fields on both sides of U.S. Hwy 30 between Kearney and Gibbon. I think that "officially" they are here through the first week of April (like the 7th) but much depends upon the weather. I saw and heard large numbers circling up in thermals over Kearney this past Sunday and then heading off to the NW (presumably to their summer grounds). So numbers are dwindling, but I can't say for sure how many are left.

A better source of information would be The Rowe Sanctuary (an Audubon Center):

You can google their phone number.
