Niles the Sandhill Crane at Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary

Niles was brought to a rehabilitation facility with a neck injury when she was less than six months old. Although her wound healed, she was so young at the time, she became firmly imprinted and dependent on humans. Niles and Big Bird live separately as they do not get along with each other, but they often join together with other residents for a morning howl.
