Down Again (+0 Miles)
November 14, 2006: Migration Day 41

It was so calm at 5 am that the team was hopeful of flying to the next stopover today. Then the winds kicked up strong. Their hopes were and dashed. They won't sleep at Muscatatuck NWR in Jackson County, Indiana today after all.

The second travel pen, ready to go to the next stop.
