Day 11 – Southwest Winds

The winds from the southwest will keep us grounded for another day.

This morning at 9am CT, we’re going to hold a live camera/chat session for one hour so that we can introduce some of our volunteers!

Here’s how you can participate. If you don’t already have a chat name, you’ll need to first register for one at ustream.

At 9am, login at http://www.ustream.tv/migratingcranes OR http://operationmigration.org/cranecam.asp and type your question into the chatroom. We’ll be responding to as many questions as possible during the one hour live chat.

Hope to ‘see’ you there!

    I like the live chat idea; need earlier notice.

    In the wild these colts would be making a few miles a day at least is my assumption; but under these circumstances you need to keep the group together to maintain control of inexperienced birds. Is this right?

      in the wild, juveniles would not be migrating without a parent. We take the place of the parent to show them a suitable migration route. Also in the wild, cranes would not migrate on days when a south wind is blowing, or it is raining.

    Thank you, that was terrific! I learned some new things and also enjoyed the friendly conversation between you all.

    I really appreciate all the things you generous-hearted OMers do to include us in your amazing ongoing project – like this special chat, the cranecam, the field journal, and more.

    Best regards, with admiration & respect!

    Somebody needs to get those winds right, so those birds can get in the sky again!
