Go: Still Windy (+0 Miles)
it's even windier than yesterday. Camp is breezy and the
migration grounded for the 4th day at Stopover #1 in Green
Lake County, Wisconsin. How
are the birds? Restless to go! Caleb reports: "The little tykes
are exceptionally anxious to see us when we come into view. Some
of the more friendly birds (I’ve taken a new liking to
5-11) even pace up against the fence in our direction as we walk
toward the pen...As much as I disliked seeing our birds uncomfortable and nervous
in their new site, I hope their initial anxiety will transform
itself into a new willingness to follow their surrogate mothers.
unfamiliar territory will make our boys of the bunch a little
more willing to follow the trikes, and thus stir the call of
the wild within them. Maybe now the species' millennia-old travel
south will feel more instinctual."
