Migration Target Day + 7
but a Training Flight
could west winds cause problems when the birds are leaving Necedah?
cool and sunny, with a light frost. It was close to perfect, but the wind
came from the west at 7 mph. This wasn't a headwind, but was is called
a crosswind, and would have blown the birds from the side as they were
trying to move south. So they didn't take off again today.
the conditions did permit the birds to take a training flight for the
first time in a week. Will they take off tomorow? Stay tuned!
This! Journaling Questions
- How important
are training flights? Do you think today's training flight may have
been as important in the long term as if the cranes had taken off today?
- Look at
the crane migration map. What is the one stretch of migration when west
winds might be helpful?
