For the first time, whooping cranes are on display at the Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium’s safari park in Ashland.

Two cranes, a 5-year-old male and a 3-year-old female, are living in Eagle Aviary at the Lee G. Simmons Conservation Park & Wildlife Safari. The area is about halfway through the Wildlife Safari Park drive, and can be reached on foot by visitors.

The cranes arrived from a wildlife refuge in Maryland called Patuxent Wildlife Refuge that is run by the U.S. Geological Survey. The endangered species is one of the tallest North American birds, with a height of about 5 feet.
