Fogged In (+0 Miles)
October 16, 2007: Migration Day 4

The air is calm, but can you imagine trying to lead big white birds with an ultralight plane in this fog? No flying today. Take a look at our photos of Brooke and #710 to answer today's journal question:


In the Classroom

  • Today's Journal Question:
    (a)Take a look at Brooke's "rescue" of the bird that dropped out on Saturday's flight. In what major way is THIS takeoff different from the usual way — when the ultralight taxiis past the pen as the birds are released to run, flap, and then lift off with the plane leading the flight?
    (b) for Bonus: Why is this called an air pick-up?
  • Migration History: Make the third tally mark in the "no-fly" space of your migration comparison chart.
