We took a trip yesterday to one of our favorite birding spots, which I can’t disclose because…..we saw Whooping Cranes! There were 4 in one area, which were too far to photograph (though we could see them well with binoculars). But then we came across 2 more in a field much closer to us in the car. I still didn’t get a great photo since we forgot our nice camera with the telephoto lens, and I had to take pictures with my baptized-in-cake-batter iPhone.
As Son1 pointed out, the 6 Whooping Cranes we saw probably constituted about 1% of the entire remaining world’s population. So sad.
