Whoopee for the Whooping Cranes!

I first heard about the grounded whooping cranes on NPR a couple of months ago, and I forgot to follow up and find out what happened. Needless to say, serendipity rocks. Today, I stumbled upon an update. If you've been keeping up with the story, then you know I'm a little behind the times. But, if this is news to you, join me in rejoicing because Operation Migration was given the green light by the FAA. Fly on, you crazy cranes!
