Winds from the west are blowing again at a strong 30 mph aloft. This makes an unbelievable, never-before two weeks of down days in the same spot. Meanwhile, classrooms everywhere are finding plenty to learn about these endangered cranes while they wait for the migration to move. For example, today's slideshow lets you pop into Mrs. Harrison's classroom during Operation Migration's visit on an earlier migration. Join them!
