Skippity Doo-Dah! (Total Gone: 804 Miles)
December 23, 2013
Weekly Updates

Weather has kept the team grounded since Dec. 18, when pilot Richard and four loyal cranes zoomed over Walker County and onward to Chilton County, Alabama. See which four had to be crated and driven to gain those 101 miles when you check our crane bio pages. Just five flight legs remain, and each day brings hope for a flight (and chance for another skip!) — if only the weather will cooperate. Our next weekly summary will be late: January 2, 2024. We hope they'll be HOME! In the meantime, see daily update at Operation Migration and enjoy live action on the crane cam.
