The endangered Whooping Crane frequents South Texas and I am always glad to see them. Substantially larger than the more common Sandhill Cranes. They have recovered from just a few birds to around 600 now. Wintering in SE Texas and Florida. These were captured near Rockport, TX around Goose Island State Park recently.
