Week 3: One Advance (Total Gone: 47 Miles)
October 27, 2014
Weekly Updates

Plagued by fog, rain, or unfriendly winds, the team gained just one advance in the past week. Day 17 finally brought flyable conditions and they gained the 28 miles to Stopover #3 in Columbia County, Wisconsin. The 2013 migration reached the same location on Day 18. Just two cranes successfully flew the distance. Updated bio pages detail each crane's flight performances. Until our next weekly summary on November 3, find daily updates at Operation Migration's website. See live action on Operation Migration's crane cam and flight cam channels.
