Whooping Crane Pond

There was an era when the now threatened with extinction Whooping Crane nested regularly in the vast swamp stretching across Pope’s Pine Land and Fish Haul Plantations and draining into Port Royal Sound.  It remains a rookery with many species of our fine-feathered friends.  But no longer is the whoop of the Whooping Crane heard on Hilton Head.
