New Target Date
Circle this date on your calendar: October 10. OM Administrative Director Heather
Ray sent news that the migration target date is now delayed until October 10. (The
target date is when the crew is ready. After that, the weather is in charge.)

The 17 birds are getting more even in their flying ability. It's harder to tell
the younger birds from the older birds now because their feathers and coloration
also look more the same. Click on the photo to enlarge it and count 17 flying birds.
In very calm air, the lead bird is only 6 to 8 inches from the wing tip of the ultralight.
Notice how white the birds are now, with black wing tips.
We asked you earlier to journal about why a bird closer to the trike's wing has
an easier flight. Hear what 2001 OM pilot Deke Clark explains about this. Listen
for and add any new information to what you already wrote in your journal.
Try This! Journaling Question
- What might be some reasons for postponing the departure date again? (What would
weather in the past two weeks have to do with it? What new problems might be encountered
because of departing later?)
Journey North is pleased to feature this educational adventure made possible by
Crane Eastern Partnership (WCEP).
