Still in Boone County, Indiana, the team and birds are grounded again by gusty winds. All around them, birds not dependent on ultralight planes to lead the way are migrating. They include several cousins in the new Eastern flock, as well as the mysterious "stained" whoopers in the Western flock. (These three resumed migration and were seen in Oklahoma on their way to the flock's winter home in Texas.) Meanwhile, on no-fly days the grounded crane-kids may be let out of the pen to exercise.
