Volunteers are getting ready to count Wisconsin’s cranes. The Midwest Crane Count happens April 12th, organized by the International Crane Foundation.
The count happens early in the morning, between 5:30 and 7:30 a.m. Oneida County coordinator Bob Dall says volunteers look and listen for a crane’s call at about 40 known nesting sites in the county.
“Some of our local wildlife areas like Thunder Marsh, areas near open flowages and wetland bogs. Cranberry marshes are very popular for cranes, they love to feed or nest there.”
