2011 Begins! (+5 Miles)
OFF! Fog lifted, warm head winds calmed just a bit, and five
of the ten birds launched with today's lead pilot, Brooke. Back
at White River Marsh, pilot Joe had no luck in coaxing the other
birds to take off and follow the path he'd chosen. They
turned back, and, we hope, will try again tomorrow. In the end,
three birds went the distance today. They landed with Brooke
and Richard nearly 5 miles later at stopover #1. Can you guess
(#2, #7, #12).
The Class of 2011's
first journey south is officially underway!
