No Go: Fogged In (+0 Miles)
October 12, 2011: Migration Day 4

Photo Operation Migration

The ten young cranes were under a thick blanket of fog this morning. By 8 a.m. the blanket had only lifted to the tree tops. Planes, cranes, and crew will spend Migration Day #4 on the ground in Green Lake County, Wisconsin, five miles into their journey south. Meanwhile, this photo shows pilot Richard doing an important migration task. What's your guess? Click for a slideshow that tells the story. Cross your fingers for a travel day tomorrow!
