Government workers care for whooping cranes
(Video by Mark Abramson/Post)
The Whooping Crane is the tallest bird in North America, and an endangered species.
Nine specialists with the U.S. Geological Survey and an army of interns and volunteers at the Patuxent Wildlife Refuge in Laurel care for young Cranes for about the first month and a half of their lives, preparing them for their eventual migration South.
The Federal Eye last week visited the USGS team for a tour of the facility. Watch above as the specialists, interns and volunteers teach young chicks how to eat, how to swim and the early stages of how to fly.
