Reach 12th Migration Stop
At 7:27 a.m. all sixteen birds took off behind their "parent plane" for a terrific flight to Washington Co., KY. They flew for 1 hour 33 minutes to land at stop number 12 in the carefully-planned migration route. Today's flight added 42.3 statute miles to the accumulated distance. Hooray!
Each of the
three ultralight-led migrations has been unique. For example, last year
on this date, the
migration juveniles were not only grounded in Indiana, but something unusual
had happened to the flock. Look carefully at the map on the left, below,
and you'll see what we mean. On this date last year, the older, "experienced"
ultra-whoopers were still in Wisconsin. How is that different this year?
