Whooping Crane in “Voluntary Captivity”

This whooping crane has elected to remain on display at Homosassasa Springs State Park in Florida, even though it is free flying and could leave any time it wanted. So why does he stay? Simple, his girlfriend is flightless and he would rather have her than his freedom. (Sound familiar, guys?) Since they are endangered, I would love to say that they had produced a baby whooper, but that would be a whopper. But who knows, maybe someday…
