Today the cranes and the migration crew put 46 miles behind them, for a total of 95 miles. I just had to steal some of the gorgeous pictures posted at Operation Migration as the cranes flew over Green County. I think they are stunning.
In this picture the cranes are gliding on the wind coming over the wings of the planes. They are not only beautiful birds, they are SMART.
This picture just blew me away.
Be sure to visit Operation Migration "In the Field" for daily journals from the pilots and crew.
