Fall Migration 2016
Fall migration 2016 is a year of change. For the previous 15 years (2001-2015) aircraft-led migrations established a new eastern migratory flock. Now changes are being made because the new flock has had poor success in raising babies. The new plan limits the captive-hatched chicks from all human contact, including costumed handlers and ultralight airplanes.
