CLooks like blue snow geese to me. Where did you see the whooper? That's awesome!!!! Can't help you report it, though, sorry!

Wonder if that's the same bird that came through our hawkwatch on Friday?

Thanks, barn swallow. Filled out a report form. Looks like this is a male crane hatched in march 2010. Flew south the first time following the Operation migration ultralight

I got an immediate response to my report from the International Crane Foundation.. Turns out I transposed two of the colors on the bands and my bird is a female from 2011. However, the bird I originally mentioned has a transmitter showing he is in Lawrence County Illinois. Is that near you?

Well, it's not near us -- but it's straight south of us, at the other end of the state. I suppose I could check and see which one went through our area on Friday!
