Yes, it's even windier than yesterday. Camp is breezy and the migration grounded for the 4th day at Stopover #1 in Green Lake County, Wisconsin. How are the birds? Restless to go! Caleb reports: "The little tykes are exceptionally anxious to see us when we come into view. Some of the more friendly birds (I’ve taken a new liking to 5-11) even pace up against the fence in our direction as we walk toward the pen...As much as I disliked seeing our birds uncomfortable and nervous in their new site, I hope their initial anxiety will transform itself into a new willingness to follow their surrogate mothers. Maybe unfamiliar territory will make our boys of the bunch a little more willing to follow the trikes, and thus stir the call of the wild within them. Maybe now the species' millennia-old travel south will feel more instinctual."
