Cranes grounded again

The whooping cranes on their way from Wisconsin have been grounded again due to bad weather, according to the St. Pete Times. Previous posts on the cranes' trek are here and here. This year's trip has lasted longer than the past six migrations, which ended with the cranes arrival in December. Last year, all the birds that made it to Florida died, all but one killed by lightning and rising water from a strong February storm.
