Whooping Cranes in Alabama

The photo below was taken by Heather Ray yesterday in Alabama. She emailed us photos earlier in the year and I have been emailing information to her about our Kindergarten whooping crane activities at Barrett. Ms. Ray has been following the whooping crane migration since they started in October 2008 (although she and the cranes took a break over winter vacation). When do you think the whooping cranes will reach Florida? Follow the migration daily on the JOURNEY NORTH website. Whooping Cranes in AlabamaAll RIGHT! They added another 52 miles today as all 14 birds took off behind Joe Duff’s ultralight for the flight to Pike County, Alabama. They got off to a late start (8:10 am) because they waited for the fog to go away. The migration is one stop closer to the goal, and tomorrow’s weather forecast looks good for a flight. How many total miles have they gone?
