ANTIGO, Wis (WSAU)   Wisconsin whooping cranes are returning from their annual migration trip to Florida. Despite the cold and snowy weather, 84 cranes were confirmed to be in central Wisconsin as of April third. That’s out of 108 total cranes known to be in the wild throughout the eastern part of North America. The numbers come from the Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership, which helps run the 12-year-old effort to increase the population of the endangered whooping crane in the eastern United States. A

lso, two chicks that hatched in the wild last year in Wisconsin spent the winter in Indiana with their parents – and they’ve since flown back to the Badger State. The Eastern Partnership says it’s the first time in which chicks born in the wild have completed a migration cycle.
