This is a whooping crane. Whooping cranes are the tallest birds in North America. The whooping crane is not the most endangered bird in the whole world, but it used to be. Fifty years ago, there were only about 20 of them left. The International Crane Foundation in Baraboo, Wisconsin is working to save the cranes, and now there are over 500 whooping cranes in the world.
The whooping cranes have a really neat cage at the International Crane Foundation. You can go in and sit down and watch the cranes walk around and drink from a pond right in front of you. While we were there last Saturday, we made a movie of one of them walking across the pond. On the movie, you can hear my little sister Evie talking about the crane:
We liked watching the whooping crane walk. This is a very cool website Raymie. We look forward to learning about more cool animals.
