Some Miles, Much Cooperation (Total Gone: 47 Miles)

Weekly Updates

In a hard-earned show of unity and ace flying by all eight cranes, they progressed 28 miles to Columbia County, Wisconsin on October 17. Flight attempts for the past four days, however, have been quelled by autumn rain, winds, or fog. Pumpkin play in the pens is their routine when grounded. Until our next weekly summary on October 28, find daily updates at Operation Migration and watch live action on the crane cam. Hope for better weather!
