Welcome back to Alabama - Operation Migration
It's really exciting each year to see the baby whooping cranes being lead and taught their migration path to Florida in this out of the box way. Just took a look at the Operation Migration website and their live chat seems to be saying that this Ultra light led "scout troop" just crossed the state line on their way to their annual respit in Russellville. I'd love to see a landing, but am pretty sure those baby whoopers will beat me there.
Oh, it looks like the guy in the ultra light is texting updates! Yikes!
Their mission: "To promote the conservation of migratory species through innovative research, education and partnership." Cheers to Operation Migration. I hope you enjoy your Alabama visit, and please do come back to see us!
