SEATTLE —

The Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle announces the birth of a red-crown crane chick.

The fluffy brown male born May 13 is finding its way through the wetland exhibit with the help of its 21-year-old parents. They know what they're doing; they have had 13 successful hatchings.

The red-crown crane is an endangered species with an estimated 2,700 remaining in their native habitat in northeast Asia.
