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."
