Whooping Cranes, St. Marks, FRIDAY morning
- from Operation Migration
November 22, 2012
Migration Day 56
Leon County, Florida
Preparations for the final leg of the 2012 Migration will occupy the crew today. Re-organizing equipment, shifting pen panels, re-locating vehicles and people down route, and some minor repairs are the order of the day. Assuming the weather and winds cooperate, we will fly last twenty+ miles to the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge tomorrow (Friday.)
Official sunrise Friday is at 7:10AM EST, and barring fog or other delaying condition, the pilots should be in the air with the Class of 2012 shortly after that time. They expect the flight to St. Marks to take no longer than approximately 30 minutes, so to be on the safe side, Arrival Event viewers will want to be in place no later than 7:30AM.
This is in the town of St. Marks, near the San Marcos Fort. Go to the web site for further info.
