November 14, 2007: Migration Day 33
a beautiful day in Morgan County, Indiana, but the team will be
stuck here for a 4th day. Why? "WSW surface
winds favor a flight plan to Philadelphia, and aloft, it looks like we'd be blown
to St. Louis, Missouri," reported Liz from the OM office. Those winds won't
get them closer to Florida! Alas, it looks like 2 more days until
calm winds and a gentle push aloft
from northwest winds will get them out of Morgan County.
Journal Question: When do you predict adult crane
reach Florida? Meet this crane and learn more about his
life! (TIP: To inform your prediction, look at this bird's
history of migration departure and arrival dates. Also
see DAR 27-06's page for Fall 2007 news to compare.)
Crafts. After reading yesterday's
report about Nadia
and Eve's success selling origami cranes to help migration
expenses, would you like to fold your own cranes?

cheers for these good-hearted and generous students!
