MID-OCTOBER TO END
The refuge begins posting updates
once the birds begin arriving (around mid-October) and posts
information frequently until the birds leave for their summer
home in Canada (near the end of March). Once the birds have
left their wintering grounds and the data has been fully
analyzed, the refuge prepares the Aransas-Wood Buffalo
Whooping Crane Abundance Survey, a full report on the season.
This information will also be made available to the public.
