Migration Day 26
Well, it's the same story today: WINDS. The team doesn't know if they
even expect to go tomorrow morning! From the Morgan County, IN pen
site, Mark Nipper reports: "The birds are doing fine out in their
pen. If we have to be down, this is a great place for us to be down.
birds are in a secure place and we do not have to worry much about
any trouble at
the pen. Now we just need to find stuff to do."
