There's no flying today, but not due to weather. Equipment issues are keeping them at the Franklin County stopover another day. Looking back, the migration had just landed here on this date in 2009. Last year, however, they had already delivered five cranes to their St. Marks NWR winter home, and were 3 stops from getting the other five cranes to their winter home at Chassahowitzka NWR. But what surprising thing happened on this date in 2010? Thanks for hanging in there with the birds and the team!
