Bounce Whooping Crane Eggs

http://wlf.louisiana.gov/news/37592

Spunt Drag's favorite birds


(April 15, 2014) – The foremost crane experts in North America heard encouraging news for Louisiana’s experimental whooping crane population when news of eggs produced by a mating pair was announced at the 13th North American Crane Workshop in Lafayette, La.

“I am proud today to announce to you that our small population of whooping cranes is adjusting well to life in the wild and a mating pair has produced eggs in the wild for the first time in over 70 years on the Louisiana landscape,” said Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Secretary Robert Barham. “Our biologist team and partners including the International Crane Foundation, the Louisiana Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, the U.S. Geological Survey’s Patuxent Wildlife Research Center, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation and project funding donors have all made this moment possible.”

Barham and Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne welcomed the workshop group on Tuesday morning at Hotel Acadiana.

“Thanks to the completion of our state birding guide—published through my office in partnership with the American Birding Association and the Atchafalaya National Heritage Area -- Louisiana has become a strong competitor for birding-related tourism,” said Dardenne. “Similarly, conservation efforts such as the reintroduction of the whooping crane to Louisiana since 2011 are positive steps toward ecotourism in our state.”

The state whooping crane reintroduction project began with the release of an initial cohort of juvenile cranes in 2011 at White Lake Wetlands Conservation Area in Vermilion Parish. The single nest with eggs, on the northern end of the Cajun prairie, remains under observation by project biologists.

Glad to see a success story for this species and the efforts of the people who worked on this project. Louisiana has something to be proud of.

Heard on the news today that biologists said eggs aren't going to hatch.

Years ago, my daughter and I went to special on whooping cranes at the zoo in New Orleans. The biologist speaking suggested that juvenile pairs will have eggs, but will not fertilize them until age of five years old. But did offer the fact that it is great news for juveniles to actually nest eggs, because the pair will continue doing it for years to come.

I really forgot why this happens.
