Blowing: Not Going (+0 Miles)
January 8, 2008: Migration Day 77

The new flock's first family (#211, #217, #W1-06) in Florida. Juvenile W1-06 was on her parents' territory when they arrived on January 4, 2008. Trackers will continue to monitor these three birds closely to see how they interact. Thank you for the report, Sara!
