'White crane still at Bosque del Apache NWR and still 'hooked up'

I saw the white crane, identified by National Wildlife Refuge regional staff as a leucistic Sandhill Crane, on my return trip when I stopped at Bosque del Apache NWR. And it is still associating (most would call it consorting) with a typical Sandhill Crane.
The white on this crane really stands out both in daytime but especially at dusk when I took these photos.
Though this white crane stands out like a sore thumb, I saw it and it's partner often in the company of other typical Sandhill Cranes. SeEtta
