Richard was the pilot today, 4 chicks came out of the pen.
There were supposed to be 7 OM chicks 2015 but one was sent elsewhere so we only have 6
The 2012 and 2014 cranes showed up again today and were pests

Hi Shep.  Thanks for the OM updates and pics.  :)  I usually follow OM at the OM site and see their pics/vids/daily reports, calendars, etc there, but I haven't gotten to it yet this year, so it's nice to get some of that from you here.

You said one of the 2015 chicks was sent elsewhere this year, leaving 6 for OM training this year.  Where was it sent, and why?  LOL... inquiring minds... lol.  ;) :D

The 2012 and 2014 cranes showed up again today and were pests,

I got a sweet pic of the WHOLE GANG!  Pilot, trike, tumes, chicks -
and the naughty adults they call wb for white birds

baz!  I am glad to see you here!
I know OM has their forum but there is so much they dont report

Chick #7 went to LA to expand the genetic diversity of that group
