A WHOOPING CRANE stands about four feet in height and has a red face-streak. In flight it is often confused with the White Pelican, which also is a large white bird with black wing tips. The Whooping Crane flies with its neck outstretched and long legs trailing well beyond the tail. The White Pelican flies with the neck curved so that the head rests on the shoulders, its short legs do not extend beyond the tail, and it has a yellow throat pouch. Sometimes Whooping Cranes are confused with Snow Geese, which are white birds with black wing tips too; but Snow Geese are r_nuch smaller than Whooping Cranes and they have short l'egs and a short bill.

ROSS'S GOOSE is a small white goose with black wing tips. It is illegal to kill this bird at any time. Unfortunately many are shot each year in mistake for the Snow Goose with which it often as -sociates. It closely resembles the Snow Goose but is little more than half as being the smallest of North American geese. The bill of the Ross' s Goose is warty-based and rather stubby and, unlike that of the Snow Goose, it has no black" grinning patch" on it. There are believed to be only about 1,500 Ross's Geese alive in North America today. Their numbers decrease every year and they are in danger of extinction. Look carefully before you shoot.
