to Go Two in a Row! (+55.2
GREAT news! After almost 1.5 hours in the air, Joe landed in Morgan County, Indiana with 14 of the 16 birds that took off with him. It's the biggest group to have stayed on the wing for a whole leg of the migration! Crane #721 was slow coming out of the pen, but took off with Richard and they beat the other 16 to the new stopover site. A short way out, #710 broke away from Joe's big group and chase pilot Chris swooped in to fly with 710. When 727 fell back, Brooke picked her up and led her the rest of the way. Action for everyone, and 55.2 miles closer to the finish line!
