Headwinds Prevent Flight
|Migration Grounded. Photo OM for WCEP
It's a chilly 34 degrees with headwinds from the southeast at 10-15 MPH. Maybe the cranes are glad for a day of
rest after yesterday's journey.
Try This! Journaling Question
- Review the personality characteristics of the birds with
our newest notes. Then make a prediction about yesterday's flight. Which 6 birds flew 47.2 miles nonstop to the
Green County stopver site? Which 3 birds turned back near the Sauk County site? Which 2 birds dropped out before
crossing the ridge? Which 1 bird dropped out 38 miles into the flight?
