Horicon Marsh NWR, near Fond du Lac, WI, is the new home to eight Whooping Crane chicks who were hatched and raised by costumed biologists at the International Crane Foundation (ICF) in Baraboo, WI. The chicks range in age from 10-14 weeks old.

After a couple of weeks in a protected area, the chicks will join the older cranes in the area. They will learn the migration route south by following the older birds.
