A New Life for Two Whooping Crane Chicks
By Mark Chenoweth of Whooper Happenings

Bode and Ohno lived apart from the other birds for many days. It kept them from getting or giving germs that might make them or other birds sick. It gave the zoo time to build a special habitat that would be Bode and Ohno's new home.

“The two chicks got their first view of us as we pulled them out of the crates when they arrived at the Zoo,” said Donna Bear-Hull at the zoo. “They both just walked to the far side, pretty calm. I was very surprised.”
