She said that Canadian biologists counted 49 nests and 24 chicks during this year's nest- ing season surveys. One of the rarest of North American birds, the whooping crane's recovery has been slow but steady. Stukel said that the whooping cranes are a victim of wetland drainage and destruction. "Only 16 whoopers remained 50 years ago. Legal protec- tion and public cooperation have helped this impressive species recover Happy 21st Don Kohl - Owner [ Love, 1/4 Mile South of Junction 12 & 75 I and --title Dylan, Tanner MN PHONE (320) 839-2073 from near extinction." Whoopers are all white with black wingtips, visible only in flight. They fly with neck and long legs extended. "White pelicans are also white with black wingtips," Stukel noted. "A pel- ican's short legs don't extend beyond the tail in flight, a feature sometimes difficlalt to see. Pelicans often migrate in flocks of 20 or more. "Snow geese are also white with black wingtips, but they are smaller than whoopers, and their short legs don't extend beyond their tail during flights. Snow geese usually travel in large flocks. "Whooping cranes migrate during the day, usually in small groups of 3- 7 birds, unlike the large flocks of gray sandhiil cranes that also travel through South Dakota. But unless you're an experienced bird watcher, identifying birds in flight is difficult," Stukel said. Whooping cranes are most likely to be seen in central South Dakota on shallow wetlands associated with cropland or pasture. Stukel said that a day's flight may end in midafternoon or later, when whoopers feed and rest before roosting for the night. "Reliable sightings help state and fed- eral agencies protect this endangered species from potentially hazardous situations."

A lot of media attention has recently focused on tobacco---maybe what hasn't been said is the bottom line. The bottom line is if you quit smoking, you will greatly reduce your risk of lung cancer, heart disease, emphysema and a long list of other smoking-related illnesses. i If kids do not start to smoke, we would eliminate the single bigge;st cause of premature death in the country. I urge those who smoke to try to quit on D-Day and parents to talk with your children about the hartaful effects of tobacco in an effort to keep them from ever starting to use tobacco products.
