No Go. Too WINDY (+0 Miles)
October 24, 2009: Migration Day 9

All 20 chicks are waiting for the wind to quit at Stopover #1.
Operation Migration

Yesterday's drizzles and drenchings are done, but the wind is today's enemy. They've traveled only four miles of the over-1250-mile journey and it's time to migrate! In fact, five of their 247 wild whooper cousins in the world's only natural flock of Whooping cranes have already completed their migration from their nesting grounds in Canada down to their wintering grounds in Texas.

Today the batteries are being replaced on the world's first live CraneCam now set up at Stopover #1. Please check back to watch the young cranes!
