Cranes

Because of your last post, Nancy, I spent time browsing the Operation Migration website. On the field notes page, they have some great videos of the birds flying behind the ultralight, learning how to migrate. But how do the birds figure out that they should follow the ultralight aircraft? Anyway, it's fascinating, and so sad that they all died.

Last time I looked at pictures of cranes like that, I was struck by how beautiful their spread wings were, and ever since have thought about how to make a shawl like that. I found this picture on National Geo's website (although it's credited to Operation Migration). Do you think we could design a shawl like that?

Will you visit the Whooping Crane place in Wisconsin this year? Love, Mary
