Probably NO species is migrating south today! Severe storms with damaging winds blew through much of Illinois last night. The team made sure the crane enclosure and aircraft were secure, then watched the lightning show. Things weren't much better when they awoke this morning. Winds gusting up to 40 mph out of the southwest meant no flying for the sixth day in a row. Tomorrow looks promising. Hang in there with the team!
