“NOTE: Whooping Cranes in the Louisiana population have been known to travel into the surrounding states.”
If you are lucky enough to see whooping cranes, please do not approach them closely, even in a vehicle, to avoid habituating the birds to human activity. LDWF also asks that no location information more specific than county or parish level be shared on social media, bird listservs or other public sites.
