It's nice to see Whooping Cranes in Rice County again.  Have Cranes 7-07 & 39-07 produced any offspring?  The Whooping Cranes from Necedah NWR all seem to have low or no reproduction.  Is there any move to relocate the captive flock effort to a more natural nesting area farther north where black flies don't interfere and they can have more success?

  Eva Szyszkoski of the International Crane Foundation writes: "Based on the bands I could pull off of your photos, these two birds are adult breeding pair numbers 7-07 and 39-07. They are both four years old. They nested this year near the Necedah NWR but abandoned their nest on 4 May. Two eggs were collected (one infertile, one fertile but addled). They have a history of moving into Minnesota in the summer or fall every year (except for last year when they molted and were unable to fly for ~6 weeks). They will most likely begin migration south from Minnesota and will not return to Wisconsin before then. No. 7-07 was raised and released using the ultra-light release method and no. 39-07 was raised and released using the Direct Autumn Release method. They have been together for about three years now."
