Fogged In (+0 Miles)
October 16, 2007: Migration Day 4

In the Classroom

  • Today's Journal Question:
    (a)Take a look at Brooke's "rescue" of the bird that dropped out on Saturday's flight. In what major way is THIS takeoff different from the usual way — when the ultralight taxiis past the pen as the birds are released to run, flap, and then lift off with the plane leading the flight?
    (b) for Bonus: Why is this called an air pick-up?
  • Migration History: Make the third tally mark in the "no-fly" space of your migration comparison chart.
