September 30, 2013
Weekly Updates

Winds out of the south blew away plans to start migration today. Flying into headwinds is no way to begin! Will conditions be better to try again tomorrow? Watch for our newsflash on departure day, and regular weekly summaries each Monday during migration. Find daily updates at Operation Migration and watch the chicks on the crane cam. Good luck, Class of 2013!
