- 1. 12/11/05 - Whooping Crane Arrival
The Whooping Cranes are currently two stops away from their arrival near
Dunnellon. After talking with some of the crew last evening, it appears that they
may be there Monday or Tuesday, weather depending of course. If you know
anyone from the Sarasota Audubon group who might be interesting in going up for
the arrival, would you please pass this info on to them. You may also share our
phone number (379-3793) with them and we will give them any info we might get
ahead of time. They can also follow the web site updates to get a better feel
for the arrival date. www.operationmigration.org and click on "in the field"
