Here is news about "our" wayward Whooping Crane (from Operation Migration).

 Whooping cranes 309 and 520 were retrieved from Lewis County, NY on Friday, May 5th. The two females were transported to Necedah NWR, where they were released on West Rynearson Pool. They remained there to roost.

309 has a history of migration problems and this is her first return to central Wisconsin . The capture site in New York was her summering area in 2005, and she led juvenile 520 there this spring.
