more flight training

The second group of juvenile Whoopers in training consisted of six birds.



Sometimes the cranes would get ahead of the ultra-light.

Before we knew it, they were gone.

Later we had the chance to examine the ultra-lights in the hangar.

Richard explained the fine art of piloting his craft. The most difficult part? Wearing the hot, white suit and pretending to be a Whooping Crane!

As thanks, Stan presented each of our guides a copy of his latest owl book.

It was now early afternoon & time to head back to the Twin Cities.
Thank you, Stan, for another wonderful trip!
