After flying their final 28 miles, the five young cranes completed migration early Friday. "It was a fantastic sight to behold this morning as they arrived at St Marks!" wrote Carol Rogers who was among the cheering fans in Florida when the cranes flew overhead. Pilot Joe Duff signaled "A-OK" to the live online audience as he successfully delivered the cranes and migration 2012 came to a happy ending. Congratulations to the Operation Migration team for leading an inspiring journey!
