As announced in a press release last week, Wilkinson Wildlife Management Area in Platte County was partially closed to public access until late yesterday (5 April) due to the presence of three adult Whooping Cranes. The birds were visible from a county road and nearly 400 people have come out to see them during their stay. Monday evening, the birds put on quite a show and I was fortunate to capture some video of them dancing. The video is below.
In addition to the video, below are a few photos from Wilkinson WMA.
