They’re OFF! The Class of 2013 launched their first southward migration just before 8:00 this morning. Clear skies, zero fog and light north winds brought perfect flight conditions. Four cranes landed at Stopover #1 with pilot Richard and four had to be crated to finish the trip by road. Until our weekly summary on October 7, find daily updates at Operation Migration and see the chicks on the crane cam. Here we go!
