Weekly Updates

Double-leg flights on two days in a row soared them into and out of Kentucky last week! Then the wind pushed the pause button. Today is the migration's 6th day waiting out the weather in Carroll County, TN. where they landed Nov. 19. See Stopovers to count how many good fly-days will finish the journey south. Check out the cranes' bio pages, updated each each flight day. Until our next weekly summary on Dec. 2, see daily updates at Operation Migration and live action on the crane cam.
