Do you see what I see?
It’s really special to get to go birding with your dad just before Christmas. It’s even more special when your travels take you to a quiet cow pasture and let you gaze upon two Whooping Cranes. Whooping Cranes are one of the rarest birds in the United States. Their population in 1941 was a grand total of 21 birds. Thanks to conservation efforts that included establishment of new populations and an ultralight project to teach the birds to migrate, there are now around 600 birds worldwide.
Merry Christmas! Even if it’s not snowing outside, I hope you find some white. :)
