The wind is drying up yesterday's puddles, but it's also keeping the migration grounded today. It's down day 3 at Stopover #1 in Green Lake County, Wisconsin. With all chicks together again, they're raring to go — and the team shares your feelings of impatience at the delays. Not to worry: the weather will soon be in their favor, and our young birds will continue this most unusual adventure!

In the Classroom: Journal or Discussion

  • (b-for-bonus) Think about a feather-covered crane. On windy days, do you think a crane faces into the wind or stands with its back to the wind? Explain your answer.

Journey North is pleased to feature this educational adventure presented in cooperation with the Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership (WCEP).
