And Now, a Whooping Crane Taking a Bath

We visited the International Crane Foundation in Baraboo, Wisconsin yesterday. More on that later, but their captive Whooping Cranes were beating the heat by panting and splashing around in their pool.

It was entertaining to watch such graceful birds let loose and act goofy. Whooping Cranes are the most endangered of the world’s crane species and one of the most endangered birds in North America – less than 500 remain in the wild.
