This is really special. All this season, #3 has been positioning below the wing, where it is tiring to fly, leading to birds following him and dropping out. On the last flight, which was days ago, only two flew all the way, the remaining six arriving in crates. This time, they are riding the tip vortices from the trike and each other. They have suddenly turned into a real migrating flock of birds!

They are approaching their last stop before their destination, the St Marks Wildlife Refuge in Florida.
Unfortunately, the cell phone service is not sufficient for inflight video.

After 1,075 miles (1,730 km), the migration approaches the end. Lead pilot Brooke Pennypacker more than makes up for the lack of a good video link with his wonderful report:
