    on this chick and we are confident that its well being is secure The colt captured is a whoophill the result of a successful pairing between a whooping crane and a sandhill crane This young hybrid was first noticed at Horicon National Wildlife Refuge in late May It is uncertain whether this crane would be capable of reproducing with another crane in the future However we believe there is a high probability that this hybrid is sterile If it is fertile and remains in the wild it could survive to reproductive status further complicating biologic integrity of both sandhill and whooping cranes If it is sterile most likely and remains in the wild to adulthood it could result in a future pairing with another whooping crane Although this pairing would not result in offspring it would essentially tie up a fertile whooping crane through this bond effectively removing another whooping crane from the critical breeding population The good news here is we have learned the male whooping crane 16 11 is a vigilant male that has helped his sandhill mate raise a chick and protect it from predation Since this male appears to have good parenting skills we hope he

    chick in captivity Whoophills are a result of a successful pairing between a Whooping crane and a Sandhill crane This young hybrid was first noticed at Horicon National Wildlife Refuge in Dodge County Wisconsin in late May Leaving the hybrid Whoophill on the landscape does nothing to supplement the Eastern Migratory Whooping Crane Population or further recovery of the species While we are not yet certain there is a high probability that this hybrid is sterile Leaving it in the Eastern Population could result in a future pairing with another Whooping crane which would not result in offspring and could thus effectively remove another Whooping crane from the breeding population We have learned that the male Whooping crane no 16 11 is a vigilant father and has helped his Sandhill mate protect the young chick from predation Researchers are hopeful he can use his parenting skills in the future with a suitable Whooping crane mate This young hybrid crane was captured this morning and is being transferred to the Milwaukee County Zoo where it will be housed temporarily before being moved to the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center which has agreed to care for it in their captive facility in Maryland
