Your chanting worked and a GSM email for #2-17 came in late evening yesterday!

From it we learned the trio flew to a new (for them) wetland in neighboring Marquette County. This is roughly 10 miles from White River Marsh.

Colleen and Brooke were able to confirm all three are together.

Soooo, at least they moved? The other positive is that there are hundreds of Sandhill cranes were they are now!

    Readers, you must admit, even if we aren’t observing the ‘fun of following an trike”, there have been pleanety of “ummmm’s” this year with new method. Keeps everyone on their toes, literally for the birds. Thanks for updates.

    So with all of us craniacs chanting away , the youngsters at least decided to move and added some frequent flying miles to their “meters” Exercise is good and hopefully one of these days it will be up, up and away to the southland.
