Photo Journal: A new treasure


A Japanese crane chick is seen at the Kushiro Japanese Crane Reserve in Kushiro, Hokkaido, in this recent photo. The chick was hatched on June 15, 2018, to father Takaaki and mother Kaiso. This is the second chick born in the park this year, after one born in May. The chick is fed by both parents and nestles up to Kaiso's body to keep warm. The chick will grow to the size of an adult Japanese crane -- a special national natural treasure -- in about three months. (Mainichi)
