What are Whooping Cranes?



  1. 0 Votes

    The Whooping Crane is the tallest bird in North America (they can grow to be 5 feet tall!), and is an endangered species.  As of 2004, 468 survived in the wild and captivity.  The Whooping Crane is similar to other birds such as the Sandhill Crane, the American White Pelican, and the Snow Goose. Contributions from Canadian and American wildlife conservationsists have brought the bird back from near-extinction.

    To add onto what TristinTobias has already said..

    They are called “Whooping Cranes” because of their distinct whooping call, which can be heard several kilometers away. Their courtship ritual contains dancing and whooping at the same time. They area also commonly called “whoopers”.
