TENNESSEE! Two Stops Gained (+111.7 Miles)
December 5, 2009: Migration Day 51

Photo Captured from Operation Migration TrikeCam

Wa-HOO! This migration is ON A ROLL! Yesterday they skipped over the final Illinois stop and continued to Kentucky. Today they skipped over the final Kentucky stop and continued to TENNESSEE! Like yesterday, they were in the air for just under three hours. In Carroll County, TN, everyone is busy getting settled on this joyous day.

This date last year was triumphant too. On December 5, 2008 the migration not only entered Tennessee, but also reached their final stop in that state — all in the same day. What similar statement can you say about what they did on yesterday's flight?


CraneCam is live each day from about 6:30 to 10:00 a.m. and again from 3:30 to 4:30 in the afternoon. TrikeCam is live during migration flights.
