Hooray! Safely flown to Stopover #2 in South
Juneau County, Wisconsin are 901, 905, 903, 926, 918, 904, 913, 919, 908, and 929! Richard
(with 7) and Joe (later with 3) were able to lead them there, but 906, 907,
910, 911, 912, 914, 915, 927
924 flew back to
Stopover Site #1. Crane 925 dropped
out in a cornfield and was found only after a land and air search. He
finished the trip in a crate in the van! Meanwhile, the
team had to build more crane crates to box up the other dropouts
for transport to Stopover
#2 in road vehicles. Well, it looks like these "turnbacks" can
try to do better tomorrow — because right now the weather forecast
seems good to go. Will they get their act together?
morning's action was captured for all to see on the world's first
CraneCam and TrikeCam! Did you watch the first-ever
video of a migration flight arrival?
Journal Question: (a) How
many miles have they come so far? (b-for-bonus) Why
do you think the pilots are reluctant to crate and
transport the birds that don't cooperate in making
the flight? Write your thoughts, then compare with
your classroom order for Operation Migration beautiful
new activity books! Available Nov. 1, they are FREE!
