This photograph shows four of the last five whooping cranes that were led from Wisconsin to Florida by ultralight aircraft in the 2010-2011 migration.
This image is from the flyover event in Marion County just before the cranes arrived at their last stop before reaching their winter home at Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge. The other half of this flock wintered at St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge.
Operation Migration is a non-profit organization that has played a leading role in the reintroduction of endangered Whooping cranes into eastern North America since 2001.
