I'm in west TN in Hardin County, sitting in a warm RV beside Heather Ray and Liz Conde of Operation Migration as they are busy at work on updates and correspondence.
Heather just posted some great photos of the ultracranes flying over Tennessee. Today's arrival in Tennessee marks the halfway point of the migration for the 14 endangered whooping cranes in the class of 2008. Besure and also read Chris Gullikson's lead pilot report in today's field journal just posted a few hours. If you are in the west TN area, there is also a viewing opportunity posted for departure.
You can help the whooping cranes along their journey south by joining the milemaker program. Click here to check it out. There is a contribution level for everyone.
For the Love of It...
