Sandhill Crane Poems.
Additional Sandhill Crane Reports and
"Empty minds emptied the nest of expectant sandhill cranes."
The eggs laid by the sandhill cranes
were removed from the nest. Mr. Sanders' guest column in the St. Petersburg Times was excellent.
"Saving environment will save souls."
An interesting guest column about
the sandhill cranes in the St. Petersburg Times.
"Florida Whooping Cranes."
A report in the Sierra
Sun about the Whoopers and
the taking of eggs from the nest on the marsh.
Some day I shall transcribe my vhs video of the March 3, 1995, event to a binary copy
and upload it to this site. The trumpeting of the crane is phenomenal.
I also have to scan one of Mr. Elder's photos of one of the 2004 sandhill crane chicks.
How well I remember the arrival of the state biologist pickup truck
with the two large wooden cages and the two small ones that were on it.
I had the honor of reading the final paragraph of "Marshland Elegy" after the
four cranes were removed from the wild. Tears did stream down my cheeks.
And how tragic has been the loss of the young whooping cranes this year?
Where I once adopted a crane.
