The International Crane Foundation in Baraboo, Wisconsin is dedicated to the preservation of cranes. It has all the species of cranes, globally, on its property.
It’s a great place to watch and photograph the birds. It’s also a fantastic place to take the kids for a weekend trip.
The Whooping Crane exhibit is the largest and most popular exhibit. In May, you can watch mating and nesting rituals in a huge penned-in natural marsh area.
I covered Whooping Cranes and Blue Cranes four previous articles. This article features the Wattled Crane, native to Ethiopia. Wattled Cranes are about six feet tall and weigh about 14 pounds.
