and Wind Delay
The other ultra-cranes from 2001, 2002, and 2003 should be itching to migrate. Sure enough, yearling cranes 302 and 317 moved to southwest Jefferson Co., Wisconsin, about 95 miles south of Necedah National Wildlife Refuge a few days ago. Are they heading for Florida? Will they follow the route they flew behind the ultralight last fall? Will they fly the more direct route they returned on this spring? Will they find a new route? Stay tuned to find out. Crane Trackers are ready! Lara Fondow and Sara Zimorski with The International Crane Foundation, along with Richard Urbanek from the United States Fish & Wildlife Service will keep track of the older cranes over the next few weeks. Please be sure to check the WCEP page for regular tracking updates. Meanwhile, the other 33 older and experienced Whooping cranes from previous ultralight-led migrations are still on their summer areas.
