Migration Day 23

Down for the Weather Again

By now you've figured out that the biggest problem during migration is the weather. Today rain and east winds at 11 mph keep the migration grounded in Kankakee County, where they arrived yesterday. Indiana is still one flight away. They've traveled 248.9 miles so far.

Even if the birds aren't flying today, YOU can have some fun. How about drawing a lifesize Whooping crane? Directions:
