Rare Asian Bird Takes "Wrong Turn," Lands In Tennessee















A rare Asian hooded crane, normally seen only in Southeast Asia, China and Japan, apparently "took a wrong turn" and has joined sandhill cranes wintering at the Hiwassee Refuge in southeast Tennessee, bird experts say, drawing flocks of curious birdwatchers along with it. "It's a great thrill," said Melinda Welton, conservation chair for the Tennessee Ornithological Societyand a bird migration researcher. "People are coming in from all over the country to see this bird."
