3 days of progress, a strong head-wind and misty drizzle mean no flying
today. The birds are safely in their pen in Sauk County, Wisconsin.
The crew is catching up on sleep. Then they will do chores around camp.
While we wait, pilot Brooke Pennypacker has this video message for you.
All the Operation Migration pilots consider you friends!
Question: What do you think Brooke meant when he
said that YOU are helping the migration? Why is it important
for us to know about this migration?
Migration Math: In 4 days, the cranes have
traveled this far: 8 miles, 17.1 miles, 22.8 miles, 0 miles.
What's the total distance gone? What is the average distance
per day in the 4 days of migration?
If the trip is roughly 1225 miles, how many miles are left?
Keeping: This is the first "no-fly"
day of this year's migration.
