Lift off - We have lift off!

The five older birds at site #2 have been getting more and more air time during the early morning sessions. A couple even followed Joe while he led them on a low circuit around the training site and landed with the trike on the grass strip.

The younger cranes at site #1 also continue with daily conditioning sessions and are quickly catching up to the older group.



Journey North is pleased to feature this educational adventure made possible by the Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership.
