Just in time for Mother’s Day

JUST IN TIME FOR MOTHER’S DAY a sandhill crane, known as a “colt”, was hatched May 10 in a marsh nest near Elkhart Lake. The nesting pair had been watched daily for 30 days. Colts are precochial, meaning hatched fully downed with eyes open and able to leave the nest within 24 hours. The young stay with the parents for about a month before the adults may nest again. -Photo by Dennis Lubach
