Onward! (+43 Miles)
January 7, 2008: Migration Day 76


Photo Operation Migration

Progress! Fog was rolling in, spooking the birds as they lifted off in somewhat of a rodeo. Chris led with 15 birds on his wing. Richard and Brooke followed with one bird each. Under rough conditions the skilled pilots were able to fly the birds to Haralson County, Georgia and land them safely. Poor weather is headed their way, which is no surprise.
