Wisconsin whooping cranes hit important nesting milestones

Pair of cranes has nested at White River Marsh Wildlife Area for the first time, expanding the nesting range in the state in Green Lake County and acting as an important backup to the Necedah National Wildlife Refuge. Meanwhile, two cranes nesting in Necedah are the first to nest in the state resulting from a released “parent-reared” crane.
