But Winds Still Too Strong (+0
They've wished for north winds every day of the migration. Now they have them, but the winds are TOO strong! It's down day three for our cranes, so close to their final goal. Only 28 miles keep the St. Marks five from their their new winter home at St. Marks NWR in Wakulla County, Florida. They'll be first to arrive home, but weather conditions still need to be ideal for their flight. Meanwhile, the "Chass Five" headed for Chassahowitzka NWR in Citrus County, FL also wait for their homebound flight. All ten birds are clueless about all the excitement and hope they are creating just a few miles away! Will it be tomorrow? Have you checked your favorite crane's bio page to see where your bird is going?
With St. Marks cranes going first, the NEXT flight for both groups will be an Arrival Flyover Event and celebration as the Class of 2010 completes this migration! (See directions to both celebrations here.)
