Today, I had breakfast with one of the interns of ICF's Field Ecology Department at the Crane Café. It's such a cute little café. Then they took me into the field to show me how to triangulate coordinates while tracking animals. It was awesome…ly simple! I can’t wait until our position opens up to be more of a tracking position.
Sometimes I feel as though I’ve had enough crane-baby cuteness. I’ve been a keeper, I’ve served my time cleaning poop and giving out clean water dishes. I’ve done the behavior training and I’ve done the physical observations of the animals. It’s time to go out into the field!
Not yet. Not until these babies fly.
