Today (+0 Miles)
The cranes are enjoying a day off in the wetlands of Tennessee's Hiwassee Refuge. Today's winds won't let them add to their 738.3 miles of progress. But this place is so great they may not want to leave! An estimated 15 older Whooping Cranes from the new flock are hanging around too, dawdling on their way to Florida. Why is everyone's journey south taking longer than ever before?
