The team had hopes of the weather getting better and they waited all morning until giving up. The low ceiling meant poor visibility so they're staying another night in Boone County, Indiana. But the crew has things to do, and so do you. See today's journaling questions!

Try This! Journaling Questions
  • Which cranes are pictured in the photo above? Use the banding codes to figure it out.
  • Have you updated your record of this second historic ultralight migration? (We post reports on weekends, too.) How many of the 23 days have been no-fly days? What has been the longest flight so far?
  • Joe says, "Despite our large volunteer contingent, migration is the most expensive portion of the field season and averages just under $1,000.00 per day or roughly $100.00 per mile. At this tortoise pace, we could have crawled faster." List as many things that need to be paid for by WCEP partners as you can think of. If you'd like to help WCEP by sending a contribution of any size, see the end of Saturday's report for the address.
