On the second delay day in the shadow of Cumberland Ridge, the team woke to clear skies but aloft would face a 24 mph headwind. They will wait for another day to face "the Beast." The Class of 2006 has logged 675 of their 1,228 migration miles. They are 54%, more than half way to their Florida wintering grounds. In other good news, Crane #516 has arrived at the flock's Florida winter home; read his life story and you'll see why this is such exciting news!
