Sounds as though you have made some real progress this week! Reference the Cockaded Woods, they often nest in loose colonies of a few pairs. They also have the habit of rising early and then roaming all day. Best time to see the birds appears to be dawn and dusk at their nest sites, which are normally marked with obvious painted markings in Florida. Reference the Whooping Cranes, I would check on the birds' credentials, as they should now be in northern Canada. There are/have been some reintroduction schemes in the USA, with mixed success as they used foster Sandhills in the early days and the young birds then tried mating with Sandhills on which they were imprinted. I believe most sources believe that the wild Canadian birds mostly winter in Texas. I would love to be wrong because it would be great if these rare birds were now doing well in the wild. Good luck with the woodies, persistence will be worth it!
