Heat and Headwinds Turn Cranes Back
This morning's temperature was 67 degrees--with headwinds of 27 mph. The team took
off at 7:43, but flew only five minutes before deciding that the heat and headwinds
added up to poor flying conditions and unneeded stress to the birds.They turned back
to stop 22 in Suwannee County, FL. A weather pattern is expected to move in tomorrow,
so they still may not make it to Chassahowitzka by the weekend.
