Back to this week's update

What happened next?
On September 11 Caleb and Geoff released the 10 birds as the ultralight raced down the runway. Then they brought out the "swamp monster" to encourage the colts that normally land at the end of the runway to keep flying. Five birds were flying nicely on the wing while four others were moving in the same direction. Meanwhile, crane #1-11 seemed to be on his own mission. What happened next? Crane #1 AND Caleb got lost and only an air search located them again. In today's report, read the gripping details from Caleb's field journal entry, and make your own prediction about #1's future.
