October 9, 2006: Migration Day 5
from the northwest (tailwinds instead of headwinds), the pilots
thought the migration could finally resume. The
ground crew headed for the travel pen while all four ultralights
plane took-off. But once aloft, the pilots faced winds out of the
southwest. Half way to the birds' pen, Joe realized it wouldn't
work. He called off
the flight. What a disappointment! They're still in Juneau County,
Wisconsin, only 4 miles from home.
North is pleased to feature this educational adventure presented in
cooperation with the Whooping
Crane Eastern Partnership (WCEP).
