After spending a week in west Tennessee, the 2008 class of ultralight trained whooping cranes has finally moved into Alabama. With the change in Operation Migration's southerly migration route, this marks their first journey through the state of Alabama which greeted them with fresh snow. Richard van heuvelen describes the reaction of the juvenile cranes in his lead pilot's report. Also visit the photo journal to see some beautiful migration photos and the juveniles standing in the snow.

For the Love of It...
...the sage sees heaven reflected in Nature as in a mirror, and he pursues this Art, not for the sake of gold or silver, but for the love of the knowledge which it reveals.
