Find out how to report sightings of whooping cranes in Florida.
If you think you have seen a whooping crane in Florida, please
report your sighting to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service:
When they are in flight, it is easy to confuse other large white
birds-such as white pelicans and wood storks-with whooping cranes,
especially if you are observing from a distance or in poor light.
To tell the birds apart, look for the amount of black on the wing.
Whooping cranes have black only on the wing tip (10 primary
feathers), while white pelicans and wood storks have black feathers
almost the full length of their wings.
