Photo Operation Migration


The young whooping cranes blew out of Coweta County, GA at 8:02 a.m. with sunny skies and 4 mph tailwinds. One hour and 28 minute later, they had covered 52.1 miles and reached Marion County Georgia. The temperature was 48 degrees, so cooler temperatures made more comfortable flying conditions for the birds. Now they've come 934.3 miles!
