October 25, 2006: Migration Day 21
on the Ground, but Trashy Aloft
It's a nice day on the ground at Stopover #5, where the birds arrived
yesterday. But when Joe went aloft to check conditions higher up, he
found himself fighting a 12 to 14 mph headwind. That's too strong for
the birds. They'd get exhausted and discouraged—and you know
what happens then!
three other special chicks in the new Eastern flock will soon be
making their first migration. Older whoopers to teach them
the way. Who are we talking about? See the photo above!
