His creative use of humor and sadness adds a special interest to the story. In a detailed manner, the author describes the physical qualities of whooping cranes. He uses the crane description to symbolize the mood of the couple as well as the couple’s relationship. The birds are described positively from the start as, “tall and stately” (621), while their actions mirror the mood of the couple.
