2012 Gratitude Challenge--November 18

Today I am grateful for the work that Operation Migration does.

When I was in ninth grade, my science fair project was about wildlife conservation. I covered an extinct animal (the Passenger Pigeon), a critically endangered animal (the Whooping Crane), and an animal that was making a come back, to some extent (the American Bison).

Ever since then, I have had an extra special interest in the Whooping Crane. When we lived in Florida, we had the wonderful privilege of attending several of the Dunnellon flyovers. Now, each year, I am able to watch the migration online! You can read more about it in the field journal.

Last month, I had an article about migratory birds posted on the Schoolhouse Review Crew blog, in case you missed it.

By the way, this year's "class" of Crane chicks is currently in Alabama, just a few more fly days from their final destination in Florida. Be sure to come by each morning, to see if they actually are flying, and watch on the live streaming web cam (which is attached to the ultralight, leading the chicks). It's awe-inspiring!!

What are you grateful for today? Stop by and share on Brenda's blog, and follow along through the month.

Come like Life at Rossmont on Facebook, too, to make sure you won't miss anything. Pin It Now!
