Hello, FLORIDA! Only 140 Miles to Go
Photo OM

In a flawless flight for all fourteen, the crane-kids logged 96 miles today! They landed in Hamilton Co., FLORIDA. with 1061.7 miles of the journey completed. Richard took his turn guiding them out from the remote field where they spent last night. Twelve birds stuck with Richard the whole way; two others chose to follow Brooke's trike for the 1-hour-and-54-minute journey to north Florida. Only 140-miles to go!
