Go. New Waiting Game Starts (+0
November 16, 2009: Migration Day 32
Congratulations to Operation
they logged the landmark 10,000th air-mile in the Whooping crane reintroduction
program. This is the equivalent of flying almost halfway around the
world! Yesterday's celebration gives way to a day of
rest in rainy LaSalle County. It feels terrific to have added another
55 miles, and this may be all the weather allows for the next few
days. A new waiting game at a new stopover site begins, but we'll
still have lots of discoveries for you to make.
(a) Check this
page and fill in the blank: With ___ days
of flights with miles gained, the
birds have flown ___ miles of their journey
lies within the interior plains of the U.S.
How does that geography make it a good state
for the migration route? The main feature of
northern Illinois is its largest city, which
sprawls through much of the area. What city
is it, and what concerns could its size and
activity cause for the pilots? What city
is the capital of Illinois?
North is pleased to feature this educational adventure presented in
cooperation with the Whooping
Crane Eastern Partnership (WCEP).
