protects the cranes from Predators?
A beautiful, clear morning in Sauk County with calm conditions
on the ground SHOULD have meant a GO. With everyone
hopeful, Joe took off to check out the conditions
'upstairs.' But hopes were dashed when he radioed down to the crew, "It's

is the fifth day grounded at
Stopover #3 in Sauk County, WI. Ouch.
Journal Questions: What makes the cranes' travel pen
