Watch: Crane chick reunited with family

News

(WESH) – A Sandhill Crane chick has been reunited with its family after getting lost in a hail storm in Melbourne, Florida. 

The lost chick was found last week, and taken to the Florida Wildlife Hospital. Hospital director Tracy Frampton put the chick in a covered cage, and went looking for the parents. 

She quickly found two adult cranes already with a chick, but it was much older, larger and could not have hatched at the same time as the missing one.

Frampton tried again, and eventually found two other parents with a right-sized baby. 

A camera captured the remarkable moment when the mama bird recognized her lost baby, who was calling to her from its cage.
