According to the web site that has been reporting on the progress of the
Whooping Cranes that have been following the ultralights from Wisconsin,
they will make their final flight tomorrow (weather permitting) to
Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge.

The web site says, "The Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership is planning a
flyover event to give an opportunity for the public to see the whooping
cranes and ultralights. The event will be at the field north of the Crystal
River Mall on US Hwy 19 during the final flight of the long journey. There
will also be speakers to provide details about the reintroduction and plans
for the coming years. The pilots and ground crew members will come to the
event after they deliver the whooping cranes to the release pen at
Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge. The event should take place
tomorrow Saturday, Nov. 30th unless weather prohibits the flight." No time
was indicated, but last year the cranes flew over at about 8:30 or 9.

The daily updates of the flight can be read at:
