This evening I got a call from an old class mate who said he was sure
that he had just seen a Whooping Crane. I checked it out and it is one
of the birds from the Baraboo release. The bird has blue, red and blue
bands on its right leg and a white band on its left leg. The bird can be
found by driving north from Aitkin for 14 miles to County Road 3
(towards Palisade) and then going east for 2 8/10 miles on C.R.3. The
bird is in a field on the north side of the road.
