The "Royal Couple" is involved in another "first:" their nest is being monitored by "citizen scientists" and many other online observers on a live-streaming video camera recently set up by Operation Migration. "This is the FIRST TIME EVER that a Whooping Crane nest has been monitored by camera 24 hours a day, seven days a week!"

Whooping Cranes returning to Wisconsin this spring have achieved two important milestones toward establishing a self-sustaining flock of this ancient and endangered species in eastern North America.

A pair has nested for the first time at White River Marsh Wildlife Area, marking a welcome expansion of nesting range in Wisconsin and providing an important backstop to Necedah National Wildlife Refuge, where most of the returning cranes have nested to date.

And another pair of cranes nesting in Necedah claimed the crown of the first nest in Wisconsin resulting from a released ?parent-reared? bird, a bird reared by a parent crane in captivity, not by costumed human caretakers.

?We are so pleased that Whooping Cranes are expanding and taking advantage of this previously unutilized suitable nesting habitat, so we do not have all of our eggs in one basket, so to speak,? says Trina Soyk, a biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service who co-leads communications for the Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership (WCEP) leading the restoration project.

?And we are very excited about the first nest from a parent-reared Whooping Crane. Both of these are important milestones, and we are cautiously optimistic about the future of these pairs and the direction of our efforts toward helping achieve a self-sustaining population.?

CraneCam Goes LIVE!
This season, our camera is deployed at an undisclosed location in Green Lake County, Wisconsin and will feature the pair consisting of female number 3-14 and male number 4-12 as they nest for the first time.

This pair is fairly young with the female at 3 years and the male at 5. Whooping cranes typically begin breeding at 5 years of age. They?ve been a bonded pair since the spring of 2015.

Shortly after sunrise this morning, we saw both cranes chasing off a pair of Trumpeter swan intruders.
Very nice to see them so vigilant and defending their nest!
