Definition of "Craniac"

Have you ever wondered, “Do I fit the definition of a Craniac?” The International Crane Foundation’s own Betsy Didrickson, Information Services Manager, created the perfect definition, as follows:

Cra ni ac/ krane,ak/noun

  • 1. An obsessive enthusiast of various large wading birds of the family Gruidae
  • 2.A human being belonging to a non-profit group: “a member of the International Crane Foundation flock”

Perfectly written! Betsy is the author of The Quality of Cranes, a delightful little book with a comprehensive collection of facts, folklore and tales for all ages about a most remarkable family of birds. Perfect as a gift for a friend, or for yourself, this book is available for sale in the Gift Shop web store , or phone by calling 608 356-9462 x 171.

Couple Betsy’s book with one of our beautiful logo coffee mugs for a perfect afternoon read, an enjoyable coffee break!
