Week 9: Just 187 Miles To Go! (Total Gone: 922 Miles)
Two flights in the past week brought the cranes 110 miles closer to their goal. The big triumphs came when cranes #4 and #10 both flew the distance! Today is Day 60 of this journey south, where the team waits in Pike County, Alabama, for better conditions before crossing into Georgia. Meanwhile, how is crane #7 creating hardships for the other five cranes? Find details on bio pages, and stay with us for the home stretch: four flights and 187 miles to their Florida winter home! Next weekly summary is December 15 — or a news flash if they finish sooner. See live action on Operation Migration's crane cam and flight cam channels, and daily updates at Operation Migration.
Cranes #4 and #10 flew the distance with Brooke.
