Whooping Crane at Beef Teaching Unit


From: Rex Rowan <>
To: Alachua County birding report

This morning there’s a Whooping Crane at the UF Beef Teaching Unit (AKA Sandhill Station), north of Williston Road along SW 23rd Street:

Darrell Hartman thought he saw one there on Sunday, but it was way in the back and he wasn’t sure. Today he has no doubt.

This is one of about 550 Whooping Cranes on earth, and here’s a chance to see it at pretty close range. Go if you can.
