Monarch Butterfly  Migration

No Flight Today (+0 Miles)
October 27, 2006: Migration Day 23


Back to Bed?
No planes and cranes in the air today. Joe reported a low cloud ceiling and winds out of the east are making it impossible to take off this morning.

The "ultra-cranes" may be grounded, but their wild cousins are not! From the Texas wildlife refuge where they have already been arriving after a 2,500-mile journey from Canada, Tom Stehn reports:"We have perfect migration conditions today (NW winds at 20-30 mph and clear skies) and should be getting more cranes in."

In the Classroom

  • Today's Journal Question: In three weeks of migration, what do you call the BEST day? The WORST day? Tell why.
  • Migration History: Where was the migration on 2005's Day 23? What was the date? Look at this map to help you compare last year's progress to this year's progress on Day 23.
